Homeowners are becoming increasingly interested in creating homes that contribute to the well-being of their families.  To do this, they rely on designers and other professionals for advice on navigating the complex maze of product choices and design decisions.  

This course will focus on paint technologies you can specify to help improve the quality of your client's home, specifically, with respect to indoor air quality, odors, mold and mildew, and disease-causing bacteria on painted surfaces.  You will also learn how to find paints and coatings that are 3rd party certified so that you can recommend a product with confidence.  Finally, you will learn strategies for incorporating natural elements with biophilic design theory.
