SOUTHFIELD — Building design and construction professionals who are pursuing LEED Green Associate accreditation (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) to advance their knowledge and credentials for green building practices are invited to register for study groups hosted by the Detroit Regional Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council this fall and winter.
LEED Green Associate study sessions are being offered on Tuesday evenings at Gensler, One Woodward Ave., Detroit, Sept. 27 through Dec. 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., facilitated by Lynne McCarthy, LEED AP ID+C, and are also planned at additional locations including Ford Land in Dearborn and the University of Michigan ASCE Student Chapter, Ann Arbor.
The LEED Green Associate credential is intended for professionals who want to demonstrate green building expertise in non-technical fields of practice. The LEED Green Associate credential denotes basic knowledge of green design, construction and operations, and is the pre-requisite for obtaining the LEED Accredited Professional designation.
Registration, pre-requisites and detailed information on all study groups being formed for fall and winter sessions can be found at www.DRC-USGBC.org. Volume discounts are available for large corporate groups.
