Everblue Offering its LEED Courses in Hartford

Due to popular demand, Everblue will be bringing its LEED preparation courses to green building professionals in Connecticut.


Everblue Training Institute, a leading green education provider, has announced that it will begin offering its highly sought after Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Exam Preparation courses in Hartford, CT. The US Green Building Council’s LEED certification for buildings is the gold standard for green buildings in the United States and around the world. As of January 1, 2009, all commercial building construction in the state of Connecticut worth $5 million or more must meet LEED-Silver standards. LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED AP) are recognized experts in LEED that can navigate the green building process and help buildings attain LEED Certification.

As green building goes mainstream, professionals from all backgrounds are seeking the coveted LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) title by taking the US Green Building Council’s LEEP AP Exam. The exam, however, has a notoriously low pass rate and is scheduled to double in length after March 31, 2009 from two to four hours. With a staff experienced in both green building and test-preparation, Everblue Training Institute has developed exam preparation classes designed both to inform students about the basics of LEED and to help them pass the exam.

This is Everblue’s first LEED course offering in Connecticut. “This is the next logical step after having so much success in New York and Boston,” said Chris Boggiano, co-founder of Everblue. After an overwhelming initial response, Everblue’s LEED Exam courses are now available in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Hartford, Irvine, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Portland, Raleigh, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, and Washington, DC. The company plans to continue expanding its offerings into other major US markets in throughout 2009 and will begin offering LEED Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED O&M) Exam Prep courses in the spring of 2009 as the new exam becomes available.
