At Education @USGBC, we've had a busy 12 months. With the help of our Education Partners, we've added over 200 new courses to our catalog. Here are the offerings from 2018 that we're most excited about:
- Our first course about LEED v4.1. An incremental update to the LEED rating system, LEED v4.1 is designed to be our most inclusive and transparent version yet. This interactive course walks through what LEED v4.1 will deliver and go into details on LEED v4.1 for Existing Buildings.
- Quiz: Are you ready to take your LEED Green Associate exam? Have you started studying for your LEED Green Associate exam, but aren’t sure whether you’re ready? Try these free practice questions to find out.
- The updated Green Classroom Professional Certificate. The revamped course includes up-to-date strategies for reducing energy and water use in classrooms and increasing clean air and natural light.
- Support for post-secondary institutions. Curricular toolkits, campus subscriptions, LEED Green Associate study plans, and LEED Lab are four ways USGBC helps those who are training the next generation of sustainability advocates.
- Our "Live with LEED Fellows" webinar series. These Q&As with LEED Fellows shared their expertise in all things LEED: building the right project team, making the business case for LEED, or defining integrative process.
- Our growing suite of knowledge-based badges. To help you demonstrate your expertise, we now offer badges for being a Pro Reviewer or USGBC Faculty and for expertise in energy efficiency, indoor air quality and building data analytics.
- The expanding selection of curated playlists, which help you find the right course for your specific learning needs. Initially introduced in 2017, our playlist concept keeps growing as we add new playlists and update the content in our current ones.
- Videos like "What Does Green Building Look Like?". Our series of "Green Building for Everyone" videos give a free introduction to basics of green building that you can share with friends, family and colleagues.
- The new and improved Education @USGBC course catalog. Our new interface allows you to find courses with better filters and display options and smarter searches.
We're excited to continue to grow in 2019. Explore Education @USGBC.
