WPL Publishing soon will kick off a four-part webinar series to help people prepare for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Associate (LEED GA) exam.
The series, starting Oct. 18 and ending Oct. 27, is intended to bridge the gaps between other exam preparation resources, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Green Building & LEED Core Concepts Guide and LEED Green Associate Study Guide. To register for the four-part series, entitled “LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation,” visit http://tinyurl.com/66v7wsp.
Here is a breakdown of individual webinar sessions, each of which will begin at 1:00 (EDT) and last for 90 minutes:
Session 1, “Green Building and LEED Overview,” Oct. 18 -- This session will provide an introduction to LEED and the LEED GA credentialing process with a general overview of green building practices and LEED for green design, construction, and operations. The session will address the definition of a green building and the financial aspects associated with such structures.
Session 2, “Sustainable Sites and Water,” Oct. 20 -- This session will focus on “taking care of the land” to avoid an adverse construction impact both during and following project completion. Among the topics addressed during this session will be transportation impacts, the “heat island” effect, site-selection strategies, and stormwater management.
Session 3, “Energy and Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ),” Oct. 25 – During this session, webinar attendees will be guided through the “Energy and Atmosphere” category. They will receive advice on how to establish design and energy goals, size buildings appropriately, monitor consumption, and more.
Session 4, “Materials, IEQ, and Innovation,” Oct. 27 – This session will focus on material use, construction waste management, life-cycle impacts, and other areas.
Addressing webinar attendees will be Green Building Services Inc. (GBS) Principal Katrina Shum Miller and Jeffrey Caudill, a consultant for the company. With more than 15 years of project experience in the U.S., New Zealand, and Malaysia, Ms. Miller’s expertise lies in bio-climatic building and urban design strategies, ecologically sensitive planning and community design, space planning, and project management. Mr. Caudill combines his experience at GBS with more than three previous years of work as a land-use planner. He assists in certification efforts associated with USGBC’s LEED for Neighborhood Development and LEED for New Construction programs.
Following their presentations, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
