The all-inclusive preconference workshop culminates in the chance to take the exam that day.

Are you ready to demonstrate your general knowledge of green building practices and your ability to support others working on LEED projects? The LEED Green Associate is a foundational credential signifying core competency in green building design, construction and operations. With the increase in green jobs, employers are seeking staff qualified in up-to-date sustainability practices.

Come to Greenbuild Chicago, and leave with your LEED Green Associate credential. For the first time in 2018, USGBC offers Greenbuild attendees the opportunity to take an all-inclusive, preconference workshop on the credential, at the end of which you may sit for the exam.

With this workshop, you will have access to

  • Advance study resources, including video and reading material.
  • An on-site workshop featuring testing tips, key terms and group practice activities.
  • The chance to take the exam at a nearby testing center, for same-day results.

Please note: You must register for the workshop before October 30, since attendees need adequate time to access the pre-workshop course content and study on their own, before attending the in-person workshop.

LEED Green Associate Bootcamp

Tues., November 13, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.

Led by USGBC Faculty member Annette Stelmack, this full-day workshop is an active, blended learning experience. You will begin studying on your own before you arrive, through online videos and reading materials. During the workshop itself, you will participate in interactive review and discussion of exam materials and group activities.

You’ll be ready to take the exam at the end of the day. Workshop registration includes access to pre-work study materials and the exam fee. Success at passing the exam is based on completing the pre-work prior to attending the on-site workshop. Your registration fee includes one exam fee. You can make arrangements to take the exam on the day of the workshop, or alternatively, you can receive an exam registration voucher valid until December 31.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to

  • Define the LEED rating system and identify terms, phrases and acronyms.
  • Describe LEED credit categories, prerequisites and credit requirements.
  • Recognize strategies for passing the exam.
  • Summarize the LEED credential maintenance program.
