LEED Green Associate (GA) Training

When: October 22nd 2017 – 1:00PM to 5:00 PM
Where: Vanderbilt University – Buttrick Hall – Room 201

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. The LEED Green Associate is the only professional designation to show employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field

To date, this course and its materials have proven to be instrumental in helping over 8000 students pass their respective exam at a 100% pass rate. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name!

A new LEED rating system (v4) was introduced last month and this training course is one of the few that has been updated to teach the current rating system.

If you are worried about your busy schedule, fear not, as the course is entirely recorded and you can watch the part that you cannot attend or take the whole course online.

This professional designation never expires and you will never have to retest if you pass now!

Early-Bird Cost: $300 ($200 for full time students)
