LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a scorecard founded by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), recognized globally as verifying how green a building is constructed and run. On April 6, the LEED Green Associate Credential Workshop, run by head Trainer Lorne Mlotek, will ensure that participants are prepared to take and pass the Green Associate exam and provide past participants with ongoing education opportunities at no extra charge. After passing the exam, participants gain the title “LEED Green Associate,” which indicates to employers that one has certified knowledge of how buildings can be constructed and run in the most healthy, efficient, carbon and cost-saving way.
Many faculty on campus have signed on to take advantage of this incredible resource. We believe that future professionals pursuing careers in architecture, engineering, construction, energy, interior design, environmental sciences, urban planning, building manufacturing, and real estate would also benefit from obtaining the LEED Green Associate Credential. Thus, we want to ensure that all students and individuals in Cal Poly affiliated clubs pursuing such careers are informed of this workshop.
