NYIT Offers Sustainable Advisor Certificate Program to Advance Careers in Sustainability

Old Westbury, N.Y. (Aug. 10, 2010) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) will hold an information session for professionals interested in its unique Sustainable Advisor Certificate Program on August 17, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., in Harry Schure Hall, Room 130, at NYIT’s Old Westbury campus.

The nine-month Sustainable Advisor Certificate Program— open to all professionals in architecture, engineering, construction, real estate development, building, facilities management, utilities, and municipalities—includes strategies and tools that can be implemented in sustainable building practices. The program will be taught by NYIT alumnus Peter Caradonna, principal of Peter Caradonna Architecture and Planning. He was the first LEED-accredited professional on Long Island, and his expertise spans civil and structural design, sustainable and green building guidelines, and schematic energy analysis.

Classes will follow an interactive format with discussion-driven presentations, small group presentations, and site visits to exemplary projects, as well as focused reading and writing assignments. The program’s purpose is to allow participants to identify and discuss key practices of sustainable building, establish competencies in applying LEED and relevant criteria or established guidelines, and analyze the costs and benefits of incorporating sustainable building measures. In addition, the program introduces the advantages of financial incentives and technical assistance offered by governments, utilities, and non-profit organizations, and helps practitioners establish sustainable design goals for project development.

The program will begin on Friday, Sept. 10, 2010, and will be held in Anna Rubin Hall at NYIT’s Old Westbury campus. Classes will meet one weekend per month on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The course fee is $2,795.

NYIT’s Old Westbury campus is located at Valentine’s Lane, off Northern Boulevard, and is open to all interested professionals.

For more information about the program, or to R.S.V.P. for the information session, please contact Jannette Knowles at 516.686.7491or jknowles@nyit.edu
