Want to learn what goes into the process of LEED certification or just gain a better understanding of the new “language of Green”? The Alliance for Environmental Sustainability is offering several courses and webinars this quarter to help you learn more about green building through the lens of the LEED rating system.
On May 1st and 2nd, two full-day workshops are taking place from 8:30am to 5pm at the AES headquarters (949 Wealthy St. SE) in Grand Rapids. The first, “LEED Core Concepts and Strategies,” will examine sustainable buildings concepts crucial to all LEED rating systems, the basic LEED certification process, the concepts of each LEED credit category, and more.
The second workshop on May 2nd will provide an introduction to the LEED for homes rating system and delivery model, “addressing the intents and requirements of prerequisites and key credits within the rating system while providing real world examples of strategies to meet them,” according to the course description.
These workshops will be taught by USGBC-trained faculty with real world expertise and LEED project knowledge. The courses are sponsored by UltimateAir, an environmentally-conscious manufacturer of products that improve indoor air quality, all of which are made in the United States.
You can register for both courses for just $349. There is a special membership offer for friends of WMEAC: $20 off a full-day LEED workshop (or two). Follow the link http://www.alliancees.org/education-and-events/leed-core-concepts-gr/ to register.
