LEED Green Associate Now Available in Canada

Tue, 2010-02-16 18:13
On February 2nd, the Green Building Certification Institute expanded its LEED Green Associate certification program to include Canadian residents. All residents of Canada are eligible for the LEED Green Associate designation. Further, the Canadian Green Building Council still maintains it primary mission of expanding and implementing the LEED standards in Canada, while the GBCI will take over all aspects of the exam administration.
Here at Everblue we are glad to see the alignment of the Canadian professional standards with the rest of the world. The new professional credential standards should result in reduced confusion for Canadians as well as reduced expenses since a stand alone Canada LEED reference guide will no longer be necessary just for exam preparation. Everblue offers LEED Green Associate training courses in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.
