LEED Green Associate Certification
This instructor led course prepares students for the LEED GA Certification exam and Green Building Technologies. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system which provides third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at increasing performance, reducing waste, and improving quality of life.
This course focuses on real world knowledge and practical skills for the workforce.

LEED Stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Who is behind LEED?
The U.S. Green Building Council, or USGBC, is an organization of stakeholders, including 13,000 member organizations, 77 chapters and 181,000 LEED professionals. USGBC created the LEED Rating System in 1999, which has since grown to become the most widely recognized and used green building program in the world.
USGBC continues focuses to develop the LEED standards and growing the LEED brand, while its subsidiary organization, the Green Building Certification Institute, or GBCI, is in charge of LEED Building Certification and LEED Professional Accreditation programs. Though separate, the two organizations are connected through the LEED Online system.
Below is an outline of the course.

What is LEED Certification?LEED is a green building certification developed by the United States Green Building Council in 1999. LEED certified buildings, on average, are more energy efficient than non-certified buildings and have a reduced carbon footprint and operating costs.The LEED rating system is based on awarding points in six different credit categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation in Design. The specific LEED certification depends on how many point are achieved. A building can be LEED Platinum, LEED Gold, LEED Silver or simply LEED Certified. Studies have found that buildings, which achieve Platinum and Gold ratings, have delivered close to 50% in energy savings.
Perhaps the most urgent issue for green technology, this includes the development of alternative fuels, new means of generating energy and energy efficiency.
Green building encompasses everything from the choice of building materials to where a building is located.
Environmentally preferred purchasing
This government innovation involves the search for products whose contents and methods of production have the smallest possible impact on the environment, and mandates that these be the preferred products for government purchasing.
The invention, design and application of chemical products and processes to reduce or to eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.
Nanotechnology involves the manipulation of materials at the scale of the nano-meter, one billionth of a meter. Some scientists believe that mastery of this subject is forthcoming that will transform the way that everything in the world is manufactured. "Green nanotechnology" is the application of green chemistry and green engineering principles to this field.
