Kickstart your Green Credentials!

This class is intended for anyone who wants more than a basic understanding of LEED v4 — including those with a stake in their company's or community's building practices, those directly involved in green building projects, and those pursuing GBCI's LEED Green Associate credential.

 


Let us help you earn this credential

Kentucky USGBC has partnered with GBES, Green Building Education Services, a USGBC Education Partner, to provide essential instruction on the sustainable building concepts that are fundamental to all LEED Rating Systems.

Our class begins with an introduction to the benefits and integrative approach to green building, and a brief background on the U.S. Green Building Council and LEED, including basics of the building certification process.

The core of the workshop presents LEED intents and concepts at the credit category level - across building types and rating systems - touching on strategies, synergies, and specific examples that are reinforced by real project cases. Key LEED metrics and LEED referenced standards are addressed throughout the workshop. Interactive activities within the course keep you engaged and reinforce what you've learned.

This course meets GBCI eligibility requirements for the LEED Green Associate exam.

What is included:

  • Access to 600 Practice Exams Questions (online, a $50 value)
  • LEED Principles & Green Associate Study Guide (286 pages, .pdf)
  • LEED Candidate Handbook (18 pages, .pdf)
  • Access to 9 hours of .mp3 files covering each chapter in the LEED Principles & Green Associate Study Guide
  • Access to our LEED experts for follow-up questions
  • Live Proctoring of Sample Exam Questions and Scenarios
  • Coffee, lunch and refreshments

This class is tailored to a broad audience so that anyone can understand the course content and go on to pass the LEED Green Associate exam.

Real estate brokers, accountants, manufacturers, lawyers, government agencies, non-profits, educators, city planners, project financiers and numerous allied businesspeople in the green-building sector will find the Green Associate an effective credential, demonstrating to their clients that they have considerable familiarity with green building, making them effective advisors in their fields.

If you do intend on pursuing a LEED AP+ designation and are not already a LEED AP, you must take the Green Associate exam first.
