Interested in getting involved in the Green Building Industry? Opportunities are plentiful in the field of sustainable design and LEED is at its forefront.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable design.
Just as buildings can be LEED certified, people in the sustainable construction industry can become LEED Professionals. For professionals newer to sustainability and LEED, the LEED Green Associate (GA) credential, is the gateway to a solid understanding of green building principles and practices, and is required for further LEED training.
Ongoing LEED training courses are offered by:
