In just three weeks we'll be holding our next LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation course! I'm excited to say that I received my LEED Green Associate Accreditation just a few weeks ago, and the course I attended to prepare was invaluable in helping me learn what would be included in the exam and what to focus on. This is also the perfect opportunity to get ahead of the game because we will be transitioning to an updated version of LEED next year, and this will give you a better grasp of the updated certification information for the new version.
