WELL AP Keeping People WELL During the COVID-19 Era
Event Description

Most people spend up to 90 percent of their time in buildings – while the health of the building is highly critical, it is a component that was often overlooked. Now with the advent of COVID-19, our perspective on this component has changed: building designers and operators must re-examine how we navigate offices, restaurants, stores, schools, and residential common areas. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has put out new guidelines for the health and safety of the indoor space. Fortunately, the WELL Building Standard® provides the knowledge necessary to make the health and well-being of building residents an even greater priority.

The WELL standard is an evidence-base verified rating system focused on operational policies, maintenance protocols, and the health of the occupants. WELL is grounded in the premise that buildings play a leading role in supporting the health and well-being of the residents.

This course covers the financial, societal, and environmental benefits of WELL certification. This course will explain the seven concepts of the WELL Building standard, strategies to achieve them, the health impacts they address and summarize the certification process of the WELL Building Standard.

The overlap between the WELL Standard and COVID-19 mitigation strategies for buildings will also be discussed, especially in regards to the WELL Health-Safety Rating. This rating system is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all facility types, focused on operational policies, maintenance protocols, emergency plans, and stakeholder education to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and broader health and safety-related issues into the future.

The WELL AP® Exam Prep Class will have nine sections over the course of one day. Upon completion of the class, students will be eligible to sit for the WELL AP exam.

The following core concepts will be covered:

  • Cleaning and Sanitation Procedures
  • Air and Water Quality Management
  • Emergency Preparedness Programs
  • Health Service Resources
  • Stakeholder Engagement and Communication
  • Health-Safety Rating and COVID-19 mitigation strategies for building design
