Washington DC (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
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.
This series, starting April 26 and ending May 5, 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/3ufuanj.
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,” April 26 -- This session provides an introduction to LEED and the LEED GA credential process with a general overview of green building practices and LEED for green design, construction, and operations. Speakers will address project systems and energy impacts, USGBC goals and policies, exam preparatory resources, and other areas.
Session 2, “Sustainable Sites and Water,” April 28 -- This study session focuses 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 environmental transportation benefits, community connectivity/walkscore, site-selection strategies, and stormwater management.
Session 3, “Energy and Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality,” May 3 – During this session, webinar attendees will be guided through the “Energy and Atmosphere” category as part of the certification review. They will receive advice on how to establish design and energy goals, size buildings appropriately, monitor consumption, and more.
Session 4, “Materials, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), and Innovation,” May 5 – This session will focus on waste reduction and management, waste audits, “green” interiors, ways to encourage recycling, and other areas.
Addressing webinar attendees will be Green Building Services (GBS) principal Alan Scott and Joanna Switzer, senior consultant for GBS. As a member of USGBC’s LEED faculty, Alan travels across the U.S., providing workshops on the LEED green building rating system. Joanna has spent more than 13 years in the commercial design, construction, and facilities-management industries, serving clients for all types of organizational space programming, renovation, and new construction projects.
Following their presentations, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/3ufuanj.
