Everblue’s LEED Certification training program  provides architects, engineers, contractors, government officials, entrepreneurs, and everyone else in the building industry with in depth insight into the LEED rating systems for green building and construction.  The requisite LEED training course is called LEED Green Associate, a blended learning program that includes 2 days of classroom training followed by 20-30 hours of self-study following the live classroom training.  The program culminates with students taking the 2 hour, 100 question LEED Green Associate Exam at a Prometric Testing Center.

Everblue’s training programs are recognized nationwide for their quality, intensity, and student success rates.  “Both our tremendous word of mouth from student referrals and our better than 90% first time pass rate on the professional certification exams speaks volumes about the success of our training.  We have really raised the national standard for building industry training,” says Cadi Saunders, Everblue’s operations coordinator.
