    Workshop: LEED Credential Exam Preparation

    Friday, July 19, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT

    Are you ready to earn your LEED credential? Do you need to revamp your LEED knowledge with the newest version? How is LEED different from CALGreen and local green building ordinances? What other green building rating systems are there in the market and how do they differ from LEED?

    This full-day LEED v4 training is designed to update attendees about the green building market, to prepare them to become LEED Green Associate or LEED AP, and to fulfill continued education requirements. The class will cover the basics of sustainability, the need for green building rating systems, and will review in detail the requirements for every credit of the LEED v4 BD+C scorecard with examples from real projects. The workshop explains how the newest USGBC update – LEED v4.1 beta – differs from the current version LEED v4.

    The training includes instructions on how to sign up for the LEED accreditation exam, as well as in-class and take-home practice test questions. No prior knowledge of LEED is required to attend the workshop.

    Lunch will be provided thanks to generous support from SOM.
