[EnergyPlus_Support] general question

Good morning all,

This will be a very simple question compared to many I have read 
here.  Our (architecture firm)office may be looking into running 
energy simulation as part of attaining LEED certification on future 
projects.  I am an intern architect, with a pending masters degree in 
sustainable architecture.  I have had limited exposure (residential 
scale only) to Calpass, Energy 10 and MECcheck software.  Since I 
would be the person running energy simulations in the office, I 
wanted to know; how difficult is EnergyPlus to understand and run?  
Would the two day training course offered on the web site be an 
adequate introduction for implementing a full scale simulation for a 
160,000 SF commercial project?  I want to know just what I may be in 
for before I commit myself, and the office to something this 
technical and involved.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  
Thanks in advance.
