Urban Green Council is partnering with GreenStep Education to bring you a LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Workshop designed to prepare you to pass the test with confidence– the first time. The workshop will focus on the key information necessary to pass the LEED Green Associate exam, including:  

  • LEED Green Associate Project Tasks
  • The LEED Process
  • Integrative Strategies
  • Location and Transportation
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Synergistic opportunities
  • Project surroundings
  • Public outreach 
  • Test taking tips and strategies.

In addition to delivering the material in a clear and concise format, this workshop presents the types of questions that are asked on the exam so students know what and how to study. The course utilizes scenarios from real world projects to help participants better understand and remember the material while providing an opportunity to put the concepts to practice.

One of the best ways to prepare for any test is to work through sample questions. The workshop concludes with an in-class practice exam and a take-home exam that accurately reflect the types of questions on the test. Participants also receive a comprehensive Study Guide that includes a course outline and a summary of all of the relevant material.
