WPL Publishing Schedules LEED GA Exam Webinar Series

WPL Publishing LEED Green Associate Exam Webinars

WPL Publishing 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.

The series, which will begin Nov. 12 and end Dec. 10, is intended to bridge the gaps between other exam preparation resources, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s “Green Building & LEED Core Concepts Guide” and “LEED Green Associate Study Guide.”

Here is a breakdown of individual webinar sessions, each of which will begin at 1:00 p.m. (EST) and last for 90 minutes:

  • Session 1, “Green Building and LEED Overview,” Nov. 12—This session will provide an introduction to LEED and the LEED GA credentialing process with a general overview of green building practices and LEED for green design, construction and operations.
  • Session 2, “Sustainable Sites and Water,” Nov. 19—This session will focus on “taking care of the land” to avoid an adverse construction impact both during and following project completion.
  • Session 3, “Energy and Energy-Related Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ),” Dec. 3—During this session, webinar attendees will be guided through the “Energy and Atmosphere” category. They will receive advice on how to establish design and energy goals, size buildings appropriately, monitor consumption and more.
  • Session 4, “Materials, IEQ, and Innovation,” Dec. 10—This session will focus on waste management and reduction, waste audits, life-cycle impacts and other areas.

Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price.
