Interested in getting involved in the Green Building Industry? Opportunities are plentiful in the field of sustainable design and LEED is at its forefront.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is simply a green-rating point system, or a scorecard. The more energy efficient and sustainable a building is, the more points it will earn. To date, over 1000 students have taken this course and they have all subsequently passed their respective exam. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name!
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 shows employers and clients that you have certified knowledge in the green building industry. Please see two identical course offerings taking place at the University of Toronto this month.

The LEED AP is the second tier of LEED designation and is a credential in the green building industry!

Our course not only provides the necessary exam preparation for the most popular LEED AP specialty (Building Design and Construction) but also provides work experience for class participants which meets the eligibility requirements needed to sit the exam.
LEED professional designations are beneficial to students in the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy at the University of Waterloo and this will a great opportunity to get ahead in the sustainable industry!
