USGBC invites you to a LEED GA Exam Prep workshop on Friday, January 19, 2018, hosted by the City of Novato. Our full-day LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Workshop is designed to prepare you to pass the test with confidence - the first time. The workshop will focus on the key information necessary to pass the LEED Green Associate exam, including:

  • LEED Green Associate Project Tasks
  • The LEED Process
  • Integrative Strategies
  • Location and Transportation
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Synergistic opportunities
  •  Project surroundings
  • Public outreach
  • Test taking tips and strategies.

In addition to delivering the material in a clear and concise format, this workshop presents the types of questions that are asked on the exam so you know what and how to study. We review example scenarios from real world projects to help you better understand and remember the material while giving you an opportunity to put the concepts to practice.

One of the best ways to prepare for any test is to work through sample questions. Our workshops conclude with an in-class practice exam and take-home practice questions that accurately reflect the types of questions you'll see on the test. Included as part of the training, participants receive our comprehensive Study Guide that summarizes all of the relevant material and allows you to follow the outline of the course.
