What is LEED?
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized certification system that measures how well a building or community performs across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measureable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
Why become a LEED Green Associate?
The Green Associate (GA) accreditation is new to LEED. LEED GA is designed for anyone interested in pursuing a career in fields related to the green building industry who do not necessarily participate in design and construction work. LEED GA is a prerequisite for other LEED specialty exams and will make you more marketable to potential employers and clients, as it will confirm your general understanding of LEED concepts and sustainable building practices. LEED GA enables project teams to deliver certified performance for their buildings. An organization's participation in the voluntary and technically rigorous LEED process demonstrates leadership, innovation and environmental stewardship.
Our two-day intensive course fulfills the educational requirements for the LEED GA exam, as well as covering everything you would need to know to pass the GA exam. You will review all LEED rating systems, go over other essential concepts, and take practice exams. Flash cards and student workbook included. Flash cards and student workbook included.
