(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Madison, WI - March 3, 2011 - Leonardo Academy announced today that it will be offering a full-day LEED® Green Associate all-day training course in Madison, WI, on Tuesday, May 24, 2011. The course provides eight hours of AIA continuing education credit. Visit the Leonardo Academy website for details and to register.
The Green Building Certification Institute’s (GBCI) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate credential represents that individuals have a basic knowledge of LEED and green building principles and practices. The credential is targeted at individuals that support green buildings in their regular professional work but do not need detailed knowledge of particular LEED rating systems. Examples could include those who sell products or services that can contribute to LEED certification of buildings and who want to have a general understanding of sustainable buildings and LEED.
Leonardo Academy’s training approach cultivates a dynamic interaction with participants and provides opportunities for all four key modes of learning. Leonardo Academy also provides training participants with study tools, such as:
· Self quizzing tools for increasing and testing knowledge
· Vocabulary exercises
· Model exam questions
