Everblue Establishes Training Partnership with Los Angeles USGBC Chapter

Partnership aims to improve LEED accreditation training in L.A.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Everblue, a leading sustainability training provider, is now offering Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) test prep classes to local members of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) in Los Angeles. The USGBC is a nationwide non-profit membership organization that promotes sustainability through construction, design, and operating practices.

"The partnership is advancing the mission of the Chapter to provide knowledge and resources to our members,” said Dominique Smith, director of program development at the LA Chapter of USGBC. “Everblue's success rate in preparing students to pass exams is the best in the industry. This commitment supports the Chapter to be able to offer programs in the community to support our work in schools, disadvantaged communities and special projects."

“Everblue is thrilled to be partnering with USGBC-LA,” said Steve Alfaro, a business development representative for Everblue. “When you combine two of the most recognizable names in LEED together, they are exponentially better than one. As the leading LEED training provider in the country, it’s essential to Everblue that we help provide a strong pulse in the markets where LEED continues to thrive. Together with the LA Chapter of the USGBC, we are doing just that for Southern California.”

The first round of classes will be offered from September through December. The schedule is as follows:

  • LEED Green Associate: Oct. 17 - 18; Dec. 5-6 (Le Cordon Bleu College - Hosted by the USGBC LA Chapter – 521 E. Green Street, Pasadena, Calif.)
