Penn State Fayette offers LEED exam prep courses for building industry

Building industry designers, architects, engineers and project managers can obtain the education they need to enter and compete in the sustainable building marketplace with the help of two LEED prep courses being offered at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus in February. LEED -- Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design -- is a green building rating system developed and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council that is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability.

The two courses, offered via Polycom presentation (video conference) at the Fayette campus, will include the LEED Green Associate Examination Prep Course on Monday, Feb. 8, and the LEED-AP+ Building Design & Construction Examination Prep Course on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Both courses will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
 
The LEED Green Associate (LEED-GA) course includes a review of the LEED rating systems. Green building practices and principles, water management, project systems and energy impact, and stakeholder involvement and innovation are among the topics discussed. The LEED Accredited Professional (LEED-AP+) course involves a greater depth of knowledge in green building practices and specialization. That course will highlight such topics as innovation in design, water efficiency, and energy and atmosphere. Both courses will cover simulated exam questions and strategies for passing the exams.
