LEED Green Associate

SIG’s LEED Green Associate Class

Sustainable Investment Group (SIG) has different options if you are planning to become LEED accredited. You may want to consider an in-person LEED Green Associate training course taught by SIG’s expert instructors.

What is the LEED Green Associate?
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) publishes the LEED rating systems to benchmark performance in the built environment. The USGBC also offers professional credentials to demonstrate knowledge of and a commitment to sustainability. The LEED Green Associate is a Tier 1 accreditation and prerequisite to become a LEED Accredited Professional. You must pass a 100 question multiple choice exam in two hours to become a LEED Green Associate.

LEED Green Associate is tailored to prepare designers, builders, asset managers, developers, estimators, and property managers to evaluate their systems, processes, and to enact relevant improvements which enhance building design, performance, and occupant comfort. Earning this professional credential will enable you to understand the interrelations of everything that goes into the construction to the operations of your building, from the design and materials to recycling plans and energy consumption. Within this holistic perspective, construction teams can make the best decisions to reduce the life cycle costs of construction and improve the user experience.

Who Should Attend and Why?
The LEED Green Associate credential tells the world that you are an informed leader in the construction of green buildings. Green building leaders design, construct, and optimize new buildings to LEED standards and are active project participants. If you are in the construction industry this course is for you! Our online and in-person training is the fast-track to professional accreditation. LEED professionals have the confidence and tools to conserve resources (reducing costs), reduce pollution, and improve occupant satisfaction.
