LEED GA (Green Associate) Certification Prep

Why become a LEED Green Associate?

The Green Associates (GA) accreditation is new to LEED. LEED GA is designed for anyone interested in pursuing a career in fields related to the green building industry who do not necessarily participate in design and construction work.

  1. LEED GA is a prerequisite for other LEED specialty exams
  2. Will make you more marketable to potential employers and clients, as it will confirm your general understanding of LEED concepts and sustainable building practices
  3. LEED GA enables project teams to deliver certified performance for their buildings
  4. An organization's participation in the voluntary and technically rigorous LEED process demonstrates leadership, innovation and environmental stewardship
Course Description

Our 2-day course covers everything you would need to know to pass the GA exam, including a review of all LEED rating systems, a review of Green Building concepts such as vegetated roofs, rapidly renewable materials, on site renewable energy, low emitting materials, and other essential concepts. It also includes a complete discussion of what the US Green Building Council (USGBC) calls its core curriculum: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.  You'll take a practice exam in class and receive feedback to prepare you for the test.
