Last week we had a great time learning about LEED v4 at our LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation course! I have been working at the chapter for less than two months, but already gathered during that time how useful having my LEED Green Associate accreditation would be, and jumped at the opportunity to learn about the exam content from a knowledgeable instructor.
Steven Burke, of SMMA, is an excellent teacher with years of experience managing LEED projects as a practicing architect in our industry. He kept the class fun and engaging, and we were able to go through many practice questions to gain insight into how the exam is written and how we need to approach studying.
The course was effective in highlighting energy efficiency standards, codes, and concepts, specifically ASHRAE codes and other LEED specific content that is included in the exam. The one-day accelerated program was convenient for the group and I to make the single day session and cut down on commuting time related to a multi-day session.
I've got my exam booked and I'm confident I'll have my Green Associate accredidation in just a few weeks!
Thank you again to all those who attended, and for those who still don't have an accreditation, we'll be offering another prep course on December 9th!
