IGBC Announces LEED Autumn Programme
August 17, 2012 at 4:18 PM
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Education programme
The Irish Green Building Council does not yet support any particular Building Environmental Assessment Tool. However in order to assist the Irish construction industry including design, construction professionals and companies who are tendering for and working on LEED projects,both here and abroad we see a need for LEED Green Associate and LEED Accredited Professional training. The IGBC has developed three LEED training programmes – a Study Group to prepare for the LEED AP exam in Building Design and Construction, a LEED Credential Maintenance programme, and a LEED GA Exam preparation course. Additionally, the IGBC will facilitate the viewing of on-demand USGBC webinars for members once the LEED progammes are running.

Study Group for LEED AP Building Design and Construction
The intent of the study group is to review the LEED AP exam topics, along with the LEED reference and study guide, to a depth sufficient to allow all participants to understand the LEED systems and processes for the LEED AP exam, but also as a foundation for working on LEED projects inIrelandor abroad.
The study groups is designed around 11 sessions, each 2.5 hours in duration, for a total of 27.5 study group hours, delivered once per week over 9 weeks.
IGBC member price: €450 pp (approx. €40 per session)
Non-member price: €600 pp (approx.€55 per session)
This fee includes the webinars and any case study materials. Book (or ebooks) needed for the study group are the LEED GA and LEED AP study guide, Core Concepts Reference Guide and LEED Reference Guide. These can be purchased from the USGBC website for approx. $425, or can be arranged to be purchased in hard copy from the IGBC at a discounted price.
Webinar-based CMP for LEED
This credential maintenance programme offers 26 webinars over 8 topics and 5 LEED AP specialities. With a combined total of 39 hours of webinars, this programme should meet most, if not all, the requirements for credential maintenance for LEED Green Associates (15 hours/2 years) and LEED APs (30 hours/2 years).
