US Green Building Council LEED Rating System

Although the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) introduced its LEED Rating System for green buildings in 1993, it took until 2009 for the mainstream consumers to grab a hold of the idea. Everblue was one of the first sustainability training institutions to teach individuals about LEED certification. We introduced our LEED training in multiple locations across the country.

When faced with the challenge of LEED version 3 in the summer of 2009, we educated ourselves on the changes that would affect the curriculum and our students. We were proud of our successful transition to the new LEED Rating System and were grateful to receive recognition from the USGBC as a Portfolio Education Provider.
