AOBA offers LEED GREEN ASSOCIATE Online Course
Joining BOMA affiliates across the nation, AOBA is offering a NEW online course, sponsored by the AOBA Alliance, Inc., that prepares professionals for their LEED Green Associate Certificate. This credential, established by the U.S. Green Building Council in 2009, confirms an individual's knowledge about the green building industry and commitment to sustainability.
- The online course – which had no prerequisites - is held each month and includes 4 two-hour sessions throughout the month, which are facilitated live by an instructor.
- Taught by a LEED accredited professional, this course has a 90% pass rate for the USGBC's LEED Green Associate exam!
- The courses are recorded so that if you miss a class, you can watch it later. Students may also review any recorded class to refresh their memory for up to 60 days after the final course.
- In addition to the course, all participants get access to 7 practice exams. Access to the practice exams lasts for 90 days.
- The registration fee for participants is $250, inclusive of all study materials. The only other cost to obtain the certification is a $200 exam fee. (The exam, administered through GBCI. is a 100-question, multiple-choice exam taken at your local "Prometric" computer lab.)
The Green Associate is now designated a Tier 1 accreditation and must be completed prior to becoming a LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP+).
