At the beginning of each quarter, USGBC releases the latest LEED Addenda. This update includes important interpretations, corrections and pilot credit updates, providing guidance and clarification. Check out this selection of three courses to grow your LEED, green building and sustainability knowledge.
This month we are featuring three LEED-specific courses by USGBC Education Partner Green Building Education Services (GBES). These courses are ideal for anyone working on a LEED project or working to meet their credential maintenance requirements through continuing education hours.
- LEED v4 MR Credits: EPDs vs HPDs—What You Need to Know: This course can help you successfully meet the Materials and Resources: Product Disclosure and Optimization credit requirements related to Environmental Product Declarations, Health Product Declarations, and cradle to cradle. Explore the specific thresholds that LEED requires and review strategies employed by early adopters.
- Vegetated Green Roofs for LEED Projects: This course begins with the basic definition of a vegetated green roof and moves on to a discussion of green roofing policies in various jurisdictions, with a focus on U.S. cities. This is an ideal tutorial for implementing the Sustainable Sites: Heat Island Reduction and Sustainable Credit.
- Arc and the LEED Performance Path, A Look Inside: Get familiar with the performance pathways and review tips for navigating the Arc platform to achieve LEED certification.
