The 3-hour Insulated Concrete Form: A Cost Benefit Analysis course is a modern learning tool for licensees preparing to renew their construction licenses. This course examines the concept of assessing that the value of something is as much an art as it is a science. This observation is particularly true of decision relate to a new home purchase. Regardless of the method to determine value, a home buyer, builder, or designer should make informed decisions about house construction options. This guide provides for that need by evaluating the costs and benefits of using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF) in the construction of a home or other similar buildings.
Upon completion of this course, the student will have an understanding of the costs and benefits of using Insulated Concrete Forms in residential construction. The student will also be able to provide objective information on the cost of typical ICF home construction relative to standard housing construction. The student will be able to compile credible information on the benefits of ICF construction relative to standard home construction, and finally the student will be able to evaluate and compare cost benefits of ICF and wood-frame house construction based on gathered data
