“Going Green in Central Illinois / LEED Preparation Training”

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

This is essentially the same successful course offered last Spring, now updated and reworked with 2009 USGBC LEED information. The training prepares individuals for and will include the exam for LEED Green Associate, now the entry level designation. For those with experience and qualifications now required by USGBC (ie worked on LEED projects last 3 years), this course also prepares you to take the new LEED Building Design & Construction AP exam (formerly NC).

This training is intended for contractors, suppliers, developers, architects/engineers, trades workers, apprenticeship instructors, city/county staff and anyone interested in green building and the LEED Green Associate designation. See www.gbci.org for more on LEED.

Fair warning, this class filled in 2 ½ days last January – REGISTER ASAP by filling out the attached pdf file and faxing to ICC PDI. The form is fillable – just save the pdf to your computer, open, click over a space and start typing. Save and email or fax to ICC/PDI.

TRICON has been working with City of Peoria Workforce Development and ICC/PDI to set up green building training offerings available at ICC and through a grant from the US DOL. Scholarships are available for most applicants so that the course cost is only $350 including the Green Associate exam. Please forward to others you feel may be interested. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I’ve also attached again the registration information for Building Analyst and Envelope Professional Training and BPI Certification. This training is geared for the residential market – contractors, workers, energy consultants/auditors, etc. It should be said, however, that much of the information covered applies to all types of structures.

Best wishes.
