Why take this workshop?

  • LEED Credentialing Exam Preparation

  • Demonstrate green building expertise in non-technical fields of practice by gaining a basic knowledge of green design, construction, and operations

Benefits of this workshop include breaking down the LEED system into plain language; developing strategies for studying and test-taking; and exploring real world projects to help you better understand and remember the material, along with putting the concepts into practice.

What will I learn?

USGBC Central Pennsylvania's full-day LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Workshop is designed to review everything you need to know to successfully pass the exam including:

  • LEED implementation process
  • Project site factors
  • Water management
  • Energy impacts
  • Synergistic opportunities
  • Stakeholder involvement in innovation
  • Project surroundings

This workshop bridges the gaps between other exam preparation resources such as the Green Building & LEED Core Concepts Guide and LEED Green Associate Study Guide and provides interpretation and enhanced understanding of key information contained in these resources as well as exam tips and preparation recommendations.
