LEED helps buildings to focus on efficiency and leadership to deliver the triple bottom line returns of people, planet and profit. LEED v4.1 raises the bar on building standards to address energy efficiency, water conservation, site selection, material selection, daylighting and waste reduction. Our LEED Green Associate Exam Prep course will provide you with live instructional prep that is useful when attempting to pass the LEED GA Exam. The course captures the critical points about green building and reflects the structure of exam knowledge and task domains to organize foundational concepts in green building and LEED. The course helps you to prepare for the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP exams, and fulfills continuing education requirements for your credential maintenance program (CMP).
