When: An online training course is now available for October 19 and 20, 2023, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. CDT each day to obtain a pro certificate in LEED for Cities and Communities rating system.
What: The LEED for Cities and Communities rating system has helped more than 350 projects in creating and operationalizing responsible, sustainable and specific plans for natural systems, energy, water, waste, transportation and many other factors that contribute to the quality of life—revolutionizing the way cities and communities are planned, developed and operated in order to improve their overall sustainability and quality of life. This LEED framework encompasses social, economic and environmental performance indicators and strategies with a clear, data-driven means of benchmarking and communicating progress.
Globally recognized experts on the rating system and certification process for LEED for Cities and Communities are needed to meet USBGC’s goal of transforming all cities and communities to be planned and perform at the highest levels of sustainability and equity. Such experts are also expected to move these communities to net zero energy, water, waste or carbon neutrality and beyond. Project teams need to understand the various data and documentation needs of every credit and prerequisite. Additionally, they need to understand the best practices and nuances of the certification process and follow it to offer a seamless certification process for their clients.
With this course and the resulting two badges, you’ll be on your way to improving the planning and performance of your city and community projects.
Professionals working in the fields of the built environment, urban planning and sustainability, including consultants, government officials, NGO staff and students, will gain an opportunity to learn from USGBC staff and experts who have already certified one or more LEED for Cities and Communities projects.
