LEED Green Associate (GA) Training

LEED is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. Buildings can become LEED Certified as can people! The best way to break into the sustainability space is to attain the LEED Green Associate. It also shows employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field. Since the LEED GA exam doesn’t have a stellar pass rate, the value of the extra letters behind your name will carry even more weight.

Due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus, I have transitioned all in-person workshops to scheduled live webinars, or you can take the on-demand self-paced online workshop any time accessible for an entire year. Starting last month, the exam can now be taken online too!
