I wanted to alert the EDU team that there are some errors in the first and second Basic modules in the Testing section. Your Module one has a slide that specifically states a 60%+ reduction in energy consumption in US using LEED building standards and yet in the test your knowledge section when you click on that choice 60% is says "incorrect"...out of curiosity I clicked on each one to make sure the test was functioning and they all gave an "incorrect" message. Also, in Module 3...again, the slides specifically say one thing, as well as the script, and there are errors in the testing section that are very obvious. Just thought someone might want to address this. Otherwise - A great job on the EDU info.

Thanks for putting this list together. This is a good place to identify LEED v4 courses. There has been a few more that are relevant to LEED V4 that I would like to list: 1. Namaste LEED: This course is ideal for anyone new to the world of sustainability, green buildings and LEED v4 - http://www.usgbc.org/node/8571990 2. LEED for Starters: A Contractor’s Guide - This course is best suited for construction professionals, this course walks you through sustainability basics, LEED, benefits and cost, integrative design process vs. traditional process, LEED v4 overview – all through the eyes of a contractor. - http://www.usgbc.org/education/sessions/leed-starters-contractor%E2%80%9... 3. LEED Project Implementation - This series is a must-watch for all LEED Professionals! This series utilizes an actual LEED v4 BD+C project to walk through the LEED certification process including credit requirements, reference standards, implementation strategies, and documentation guidelines, while also highlighting the changes from LEED V3 or LEED 2009. http://www.usgbc.org/education/sessions/leed-v4-project-implementation-1...

How do you access the online rating reference guides?
LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
The online v4 Reference Guides are available to access free with the purchase of an Education@USGBC annual subscription. Since you recently purchased the Education@USGBC subscription you simply need to log into your account and select the Online Access feature under the Education@USGBC menu. There is an 'Access' button you can click on that page to view the Reference Guides. For those who do not purchase a subscription you can buy the online LEED v4 Reference Guides separately through this link: http://www.usgbc.org/resources/web-based-reference-guide-all-rating-systems. I hope that helps.

I want to train in Green cleaning, but it's difficult to find what I am looking for for information for credentials!
LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Suzett, we applaud your desire to get a green cleaning certification. To our knowledge there is not one recognized green cleaning certification body. Several companies offer green cleaning certifications for businesses but, the degree of the requirements to become certified varies. The LEED v4 rating system does not directly address this service either. I wish we could be of more help.
