    LEED Training

    Online Webinars

    LEED is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. As buildings can become LEED Certified, people can become LEED Accredited! 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.

    The LEED Professional Designation has helped past participants attain internships and jobs and now is a great time to add this credential.

    Register for a live webinar or start today with our on-demand recorded workshop completed anytime at your own pace here - register. Students can use discount code 'green' for $50 off.
