We wanted to make sure our packages made LEED CMP as simple as possible. - Jeff Nippes, Director of Content Development for RedVector
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
RedVector.com, the leader in online continuing education for the AEC industry and a pioneer in green building and sustainable design education, recently revamped its existing LEED Building Principles Certificate Packages and added two new LEED Green Associate Credential Maintenance Packages to help design, engineering and construction professionals meet their continuing education requirements and prepare for LEED exams under LEED Version 3.0 (v3).
According to RedVector Director of Content Development Jeff Nippes, the redesign of existing LEED packages and the addition of new packages exemplify the company’s commitment to improving their LEED curriculum and prep products to keep pace with a continually evolving LEED program and best meet the needs of green building professionals.
“As LEED v3 approaches the two-year mark, CMP requirements are coming due for LEED professionals,” says Nippes. “Because it can be confusing figuring out exactly what’s needed as far as CE and testing, we wanted to make sure our packages made LEED CMP as simple as possible. They provide a comprehensive, practical approach to LEED building strategies to help prepare for LEED exams and satisfy the continuing education requirements. It’s a real benefit for aspiring LEED professionals to have everything they need in one easy package.”
