WPL Publishing will kick off a four-part webinar series to help people prepare for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Associate exam.
The series runs Sept. 5-26, and is intended to bridge the gaps between other exam preparation resources, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s “Green Building & LEED Core Concepts Guide” and the “LEED Green Associate Study Guide.” To register for the four-part series, entitled “LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation,” go here.
Here is a breakdown of individual webinar sessions, each of which will begin at 1:00 p.m. EST and last for 90 minutes:
Session 1, “Green Building and LEED Overview” begins on Sept. 5. This session will provide an introduction to LEED and the LEED GA credentialing process with a general overview of green building practices and LEED for green design, construction, and operations. The session will address the definition of a green building as well as examine the integrated-design process, the project-certification process, and other topics.
Session 2, “Sustainable Sites and Water,” begins on Sept. 12. This session will focus on “taking care of the land” to avoid an adverse construction impact both during and following project completion. Among the topics addressed during this session will be transportation alternatives, site-selection strategies, and stormwater management.
Session 3, “Energy and Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ),” will be held on Sept. 19. During this session, webinar attendees will be guided through the “Energy and Atmosphere” category. They will receive advice on how to establish design and energy goals, size buildings appropriately, monitor consumption, and more.
Session 4, “Materials, IEQ, and Innovation,” goes live on Sept. 26. This session will focus on waste management and reduction, waste audits, life-cycle impacts, and other areas.
Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one price. To register, go here.
