Interested in getting involved in the Green Building Industry? Opportunities are plentiful in the field of sustainable design and LEED is at its forefront.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green-rating point system, or a scorecard. The more energy efficient and sustainable a building is, the more points it will earn. 

Just as buildings can be LEED certified, people in the sustainable construction industry can become LEED professionals. The LEED Green Associate (GA) credential is the only entry-level sustainability designation and demonstrates certified knowledge in the green building industry. 

A new LEED rating system was introduced last year, and Leading Green is offering a training course updated to teach the current rating system to Ohio University students. This course meets the exam’s eligibility requirements, and the USGBC charges a $100 fee (reduced for students) for the actual exam, which can be taken at any time at OHIO Testing Services.

Cost: $300 ($200 for full time students)
