StudioBurns moves toward LEED certification

Jerry recently completed his first online course for LEED certification. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. Since its inception in 1998, LEED has grown to encompass over 14,000 projects in 50 US States and 30 countries covering 1.062 billion square feet (99 km²) of development area.[2] The hallmark of LEED is that it is an open and transparent process where the technical criteria proposed by the LEED committees are publicly reviewed for approval by the more than 10,000 membership organizations that currently constitute the USGBC.

Individuals recognized for their knowledge of the LEED rating system are permitted to use the LEED Accredited Professional (AP) acronym after their name, indicating they have passed the accreditation exam given by the USGBC.

So, baby steps to be sure, but ones that move us forward!

  1. Hey! I run a blog about the LEED AP exam. How are the online courses? Do you think they are worth it? I’m trying to get as much information as I can to help everyone who is interested in LEED and becoming a LEED AP. Anyways, I hope it all goes well! Good luck!
