Macau University of Science and Technology Partners with Everblue

The Chinese university will host Everblue courses at its campus.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Everblue has secured a training partnership with Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST). Students in need of continuing education in the areas of architecture and engineering may register for Everblue’s LEED exam prep courses through MUST. Though Everblue has been offering its LEED training courses in Hong Kong since 2010, this partnership with MUST will be the first time Everblue brings its training to this region of China.

Everblue’s sustainability courses will fall under the School of Continuing Studies and will introduce students to the concept of green building.

“The green building market has expanded to exceed $85 billion in 2012, from $10 billion in 2005, with expectations of $200 billion by 2016,”* said Peter Bock, a marketing analyst for Everblue. “As such, pursuing the introductory accreditation, LEED Green Associate, students can not only demonstrate their competencies in green building, but also prepare for an emerging market filled with strong project opportunities.”

MUST is an accredited post-secondary institution that provides educational services in areas that range from Information Technology and Education to Law, Health Sciences and Management and Administration.

Upon completion of training, students will be able to register for the LEED exam and earn a LEED Green Associate accreditation.

To register, please contact Raymond Wong at yywong(at)must(dot)edu(dot)mo or (+853) 8897-2282. For more information regarding Everblue’s expansion into China and the relationship with Macau University of Science and Technology, please call 800-460-2575 or email info@everbluetraining.com.
