LEED Exam Prep Course

September 27, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

The LEED Exam Prep Course is a comprehensive course which will prepare attendees for the Green Associate and other specialty exams. The day long curriculum is designed to cover the segments of the Green Associate Exam and to lightly cover the AP specialty exams. If you have specific questions regarding a specialty exam, feel free to bring these questions to class and have the instructor cover these identified areas.

Come join us for this session! We have only had positive feedback and success stories from previous classes.

About the Class
This is a fast-paced class for real estate professionals, architects, engineers, students and anyone else interested in green building practices and LEED.  The majority of attendees have little previous knowledge of the LEED rating system, green building operations and green building construction.  Upon completion of the class employees will be eligible to sit for the LEED Green Associate exam at a local testing center.  Please note that the national office has lowered their student rate to 100 dollars, read more at usbgc.org. By passing the exam, employees will earn the LEED Green Associate credential. If interested in attending a LEED Green Associate Exam Prep class, please email celis@usgbcma.org, groups welcome.

Registration and Discounts
Check our discounts to see if you are eligible. Confirmation of discount eligibility will be conducted at the beginning of the class.

Reimbursements and Cancelations
Reimbursements will be granted through a credit to be used at a later date. Attendees can change their name for a colleague if they choose to. If the Chapter cancels the course all attendees can expect a full refund.

About the Exam
The Green Associate preparation course will cover most of the material on the LEED Green Associate exam. You should plan to spend an additional 10-20 hours of study time outside of this class. This time will be best spent reviewing the reading materials listed below while paying particular attention to concepts and terminology. The LEED Green Associate Handbook references hundreds of pages of reading materials, while this class will focus primarily on the 106-page LEED Core Concepts Guide.  As part of this fast-tracked course, we will skim some reading materials and skip other reading materials.
Students who have passed the exam have reported that local study partners and/or study groups have been very helpful.

The 8-hour course is devised of the following sessions:

Chapter #1 – IntroductionThis 1-hour chapter will explain the LEED Green Associate credentialing process and serve as an introduction to LEED, sustainability, the USGBC, the GBCI and the LEED rating system.
Chapter #2 – Location and Transportation / Sustainable SitesThis 1-hour chapter will focus on site issues such as connectivity, transportation, erosion, landscaping, and heat island effect.
Chapter #3 – Water Efficiency / Energy and AtmosphereThis 1-hour chapter will focus on water issues (plumbing efficiency, irrigation, process water, etc.) and energy and atmosphere issues (demand, efficiency, renewable energy, ozone depleting substances, etc.)
Chapter #4 – Materials and ResourcesThis 1-hour chapter will focus on procurement and waste diversion.
Chapter #5 – Indoor Environmental QualityThis 1-hour chapter will focus on indoor environmental quality issues such as indoor air quality, occupant comfort and green cleaning.
