Students who are interested in the green building industry have an opportunity to attend a LEED Green Associate training session on campus Saturday, May 5, from 1-5 p.m. in Loew Hall room 112.

LeadingGreen is hosting the training, which prepares students to take the LEED Green Associate exam administered by the U.S. Green Building Council.

From LeadingGreen's event information:

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is simply a sustainablity scorecard for green buildings. The LEED Green associate is the only professional designation to show employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field.

To date, this course and its materials have proven to be instrumental in helping over 8000 students pass their respective exams at a 100% pass rate. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name!

A new LEED rating system (v4) was introduced last month and this training course is one of the few that has been updated to teach the current rating system.
