1/20/2010 —

With the continued emphasis on eco-friendly, environmentally responsible buildings, Penn State Wilkes-Barre Continuing Education invites you and your company to attend our upcoming “green” programs designed to meet your industry’s training needs.

The LEED Green Associate and LEED-AP+ Building Design and Construction Exam Prep Courses are designed for anyone interested in taking either of those exams and becoming a LEED accredited professional.  The LEED Green Associate Exam Prep Course will discuss green building practices and principles; the USGBC, Green Building, and the Green Associate exam; and topics including project site factors, water management, and project systems and energy impacts.  The LEED-AP+ Building Design and Construction Exam Prep Course will review sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and design, as well as test taking strategies.

The Green Advantage® Environmental Certification program staffs your project with construction personnel who have demonstrated their knowledge in green building practices and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).  Equipping your LEED team with Green Advantage® certified personnel qualifies for one very important LEED Innovation Credit. This course will highlight core concepts of construction principles behind sustainable building as well as integration of green practices with a focus on lightening the impact on the environment and improving the health conditions of construction workers and building occupants.
