Nov. 28 -- The U.S. Green Building Council has
launched its first Web-based training course to
educate members of the building industry about
professional accreditation requirements under the
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
industry professionals to demonstrate their
understanding of integrated design and green
building practices and principles, and ensures that
they have the knowledge and skills needed to
successfully steward a building project from design
to LEED certification, according to the USGBC.
The three-hour Web-based
course includes selected case studies, interactive
learning exercises, and a practice exam with
questions similar to those encountered on the LEED
professional accreditation exam.
The cost of the course is
$150 for USGBC members and $200 for nonmembers.
