THIS LEED EXAM PREP COURSE IS FULLY UPDATED FOR LEED VERSION 4.0!

If you are just beginning your career in green building or if you are not currently a LEED AP, the LEED Green Associate Accreditation is for you! LEED Green Associate is the introductory-level credential under the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) program, and is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council after passing the credentialing exam. This credential demonstrates a general understanding of all of the LEED rating systems and corresponding green design strategies.

Our LEED Green Associate exam prep seminars provide an introduction to green building and sustainable design principles, specifically as they relate to USGBC's LEED green building rating system. It prepares individuals to pass the LEED Green Associate exam on the first try, and is the first step in becoming a LEED professional.

 

Why Should You Attend This LEED Green Associate Exam Prep Training?

1) The Green Associate Exam Handbook contains over a dozen separate documents and resources that are considered "primary sources" for the exam. This seminar combines the most important information from these resources into an accessible, comprehensive workshop, creating a focused and organized study path for exam candidates.

2) The LEED Green Associate Seminar is an interactive, intimate and intense collaborative learning experience including analysis of real-world examples of LEED principles and certified projects; study techniques that will help you become exam-prepared in as little as 20 hours; supplementary study materials; on-going phone/email support from your instructor until your test date; and more!

3) USGBC requires you to pass the LEED Green Associate exam before you can become a LEED AP. It is recommended that those seeking to become a LEED AP should start with this training course to gain a base level of knowledge before proceeding to the more technical LEED AP+ exam material.

 

Course Overview:

The purpose of this course is to familiarize the individual with the required information for the LEED Green Associate Exam as a supplement to individual preparation. We begin with an overview of sustainability and the integrated design process and then proceed to detail the individual LEED credit categories and corresponding sustainable design strategies. "Real world" project examples are used throughout the day and the instructor will organize the complicated green building principles into a simple and easy to follow dialogue. The session concludes with an introduction to the LEED exam process, and a "road map" for continuing your studies after the course.

 

Topics To Be Covered Include:

  • Basic Green Building Principles LEED
  • Core Concepts
  • LEED Process & Integration
  • Technical Analysis for LEED Credits / Strategies
  • Exam tips and logistics

Earning Your LEED Green Associate Credential

After you attend the course we recommend reserving 20 hours of additional study time. Once you feel ready to take the exam you will register for the LEED Green Associate exam with the US Green Building Council. The exam fee is $200 for USGBC company members ($250 for non-members). The exam is taken in-person at a Prometric Testing Center, and appointments are available 6 days a week, year-round.

 

Maintaining Your LEED Green Associate Credential

Once you pass the credentialing exam, candidates must renew their credential every two years under the LEED Credential Maintenance Program by completing 15 hours of LEED continuing education and paying a $50 renewal fee.

I thought he was professional and passionate about what he's teaching, which makes it easier to us to listen to and learn from. He should continue using as many real life situations as he can to relate his points to the subject matter. I thought the content was hastily delivered but with the notes, slides, study guide, and proactive test I feel there is enough information to help his students succeed.

Probably is my perception, but talking so fast and lack of passion was something that I noticed. It seemed to me that was something he was done for so many times that became monotonous. Of course the course was fantastic in terms of information, images, and absolutely a lot of help for the upcoming test. Great material and guide.

The course was extremely informative and through slides, emails, practice tests and presentation gave us all the information we need to know to get organized for studying everything on the test. The only thing that could improve would be the instructor taking more time for questions and slowing down a bit. Maybe more video content or pauses would have helped.

He brings personality and life to the material and makes it interesting. The location of the course was poor for me. Traffic and parking around the UofT campus is a nightmare, and the room itself was hot, stuffy and uncomfortable. I like the amount of ongoing information prior to the course, and also lots of information given afterwards. I feel prepared to take the exam.

The instructor Lorne was very knowledgeable and had excellent materials to assist with the prep. He was very organized and presented the material in a clear and understandable manner. He was also very clear in highlighting items that are typically asked in the exam. He welcomed questions and gave concise and relevant answers. The class covers a lot of ground and moves quickly. It's important to raise questions promptly because the pace is so fast. I would have liked to receive the emailed class material more in advance they came the day of the class so I could have had an initial review in advance. The information on test mechanics and testtaking suggestions was helpful. The additional online prep materials look to be excellent.
