LEED GA hero

LEED Green Associate

AU staff interested in gaining the LEED Green Associate credential can now prepare on campus.

LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation

"LEED Green Associate" is a professional accreditation through the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) for people who work on green buildings, and demonstrates that the accreditation-holder has a working knowledge of green design, construction and operations, and of the LEED rating systems. 

Here at AU, staff can now take advantage of study sessions being offered by the Office of Sustainability. The timing is perfect for AU staff members to learn more about LEED, as AU’s green building policy requires that all new construction, including the McKinley Building remodel, Nebraska Hall addition, new North Residence Hall, and other upcoming projects be constructed to at least LEED Silver standards. Moreover, AU is working to LEED-certify twenty five existing buildings on the main campus. 

The course is typically offered twice per year and information is presented in six 1.5 hour study sessions over lunch time. Full-time staff members interested in attending should e-mail Emily Curley at curley@american.edu for information about future course offerings.
