LEED Exam Prep

Many Landscape Architects are credentialed as LEED Professionals, and as the sustainability movement continues to grow projects may begin to require this certification.

Prepare for the LEED Green Associate exam with four 1.5-hour webinar sessions. Teaching the four-part series are Beth Shuck, LEED AP BD+C Consultant, Green Building Services and Richard Manning, AIA, LEED BD+C, Principal, Green Building Services.

Series Overview:

Tuesday, July 23rd, LEED Training Session 1: Green Building and LEED Overview

This first training session provides an introduction to LEED and the LEED Green Associate credential process with a general overview of green building practices and LEED for green design, construction and operations. Blending project experience with LEED exam preparation, you'll gain insight on the LEED credential process in an easy-to-understand method for a positive exam prep experience. Instruction will consist of a detailed overview of the accreditation process targeting the most relevant areas to sit for the exam with confidence.

Tuesday, July 30th, LEED Training Session 2: Sustainable Sites and Water

The second course of study focuses on taking care of the land to avoid an adverse construction impact during and following project completion. Site location is critical, and a review of considerations should be applied to site selection, urban redevelopment and brownfield development. When selecting a site, an evaluation should also be conducted to assess transportation alternatives, reduce site disturbance and maintain storm water management. Don't miss this informative session as your instructor reviews these important topics as they relate to the exam.

Tuesday, August 6th, LEED Training Session 3: Energy and Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality

It is critical for your facility to meet energy and atmosphere requirements and to operate as planned within design specifications. You'll want to make sure your building is achieving minimum energy performance, and, if your building is new - eliminate CFC-based (Chlorinated Fluorocarbon) refrigerants in heating ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. Your instructors will guide you through the "Energy and Atmosphere" category, critical for the LEED accredited exam, with guidance on how to establish design and energy goals, size buildings appropriately, use free energy, understand insulation techniques, monitor consumption and more.

Tuesday, August 13th, LEED Training Session 4: Materials, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and Innovation

The last educational session addresses requirements relative to materials, indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and innovation. Participants will gain a clear understanding of specific processes for achieving waste reduction and improved IEQ in all elements of a building.
