A "green" building is a building that is energy and resource efficient, non-wasteful and non-polluting, flexible and adaptable for long-term functionality, easy to operate and maintain, and is supportive of the productivity and well being of the occupants. So-called green buildings are constructed or renovated under sustainable development, a design process that reduces the harmful impact on natural resources and looks at the life-cycle costs of the facility.

Historically, how to define and standardize the green building was a long term challenge until the advent of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) Green Building Rating System. This system is on the minds of many people in the building industry these days, and employers are looking to bolster their green credentials any way possible, including having employees that are LEED accredited.

This seven-hour course provides relevant and insightful information on the LEED Green Building Rating System. This course will benefit anyone preparing for the LEED Professional Accreditation Exam, as well as experienced building industry practitioners who want to add LEED projects to their portfolio of professional services.

Engineers, architects, building owners, facility managers, interior designers, landscape architects, construction managers, energy auditors, and educators who work in the building industry will benefit from this course, as will professionals who wish to take the LEED AP exam.
