You will be guided through your own practice project through to “certification” level to ensure a full understanding of the concepts and software. Upon completion of eToolLCD Advanced LCA training, you will have first hand experience conducting an LCA as well as an overall understanding of life cycle assessment of the built form. Ongoing support will be provided through your project as required, at mutually agreeable times, to get your project to “certification” level.
