This program is for teachers, professors and school staff who want to improve their own understanding of green building principles and strategies in order to better prepare students for green jobs. Teachers will be prepared to pass the LEED Green Associate exam using a curriculum they can deliver in their classrooms. The intended audience of this training is K12 teachers, higher education professors, and school, facility or district support staff; this course is not intended for those who provide corporate, business or professional trainings.

The cost of the course includes eight live sessions, online textbook, curriculum, and registration for the LEED Green Associate exam. Participants will attend the course in January and February 2024. Following registration for the course, participants will be provided with a promo code to use for exam registration, which will be valid for 4 months following the completion of the course.
