Tampa, FL (PRWEB) October 18, 2010 —
RedVector.com, the leader in online continuing education for the architectural, engineering, and construction industries and a USGBC-approved online education provider, is presenting the latest addition to its popular LEED series with a surprising twist – it’s a free live LEED webinar.
“Anyone who wants to become a green building professional or who would benefit from understanding the basics of the green building paradigm shift should start on the first logical step on the LEED path – and that’s getting a LEED Green Associate credential,” says Jeff Nippes, RedVector’s Director of Content. “If you’re not familiar with the structure of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED programs, navigating the way to your goal can be tricky. We think design and construction professionals stand to gain from becoming LEED certified, so we wanted to give anyone who’s interested a chance to test the waters and see what’s involved without having to spend a dime.”
The one-hour free live LEED webinar will take place Thursday, October 21st, at 2pm EST and will cover everything from learning strategies and practice exams to qualifying for and maintaining your credential. Jeff – who became a Green Associate in March of 2010 – clears the way to attaining the LEED Green Associate credential by clarifying each step and putting the steps in order. Students will come away with an enhanced understanding of the benefits and challenges of being LEED credentialed; the prerequisites for taking the LEED Green Associate Exam, tips on using the Green Associate candidate handbook, and a list of helpful online study resources.
He will also touch upon ways each student can determine where he or she should proceed in the LEED system once they’ve attained their LEED Green Associate credential.
