LEED 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.

My workshops have helped nearly 10K students and professionals learn the material cold (important for interview prep) AND clear the exam with a very high passing rate. This semester we are hosting everything online to fit your schedule!

LEED Green Associate (GA) Training – Webinar and Online self-paced options:
