This LEED Green Associate training programme helps professionals get started on the path to LEED accreditation. There are a number of professionals and companies in Ireland that are tendering for and working on LEED projects, which is creating a need for LEED Green Associate and LEED Accredited Professional training.
The LEED Green Associate training programme consists of a one-day presentation and workshop to review fundamentals of the LEED systems, the LEED Green Associate exam topics, along with the LEED Green Associate Study Guide and Core Concepts.
Participants are also given access to LEED v4 webinars published by the US Green Building Council.
Please note: This programme is not required to take the LEED Green Associate exam, but provides participants with an understanding of the LEED systems and processes for the LEED Green Associate exam, as well as a foundation for working on LEED projects in Ireland or abroad. Also note that LEEDv4 is the only system under which you can take the USGBC exams, even though you may be working with other LEED systems on your current projects.
To take the exam you will need to register separately through the USGBC in order to schedule an exam through Prometrics exam centres in Ireland. For full detail on this process download the LEED Green Associate Candidate handbook here.
