Austin Community College (ACC) is offering a series of new courses in fall to address growing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) construction demands.
“Energy efficient, green building is growing rapidly in Central Austin. Builders are being tasked with achieving LEED certification,” says Andy Kim, ACC director of energy and sustainability. “These courses will provide impactful training; preparing students to directly enter the workforce with the credentials to certify these projects.”
The courses, offered through the college’s Continuing Education Division, include:
- LEED Green Associate (GA) Exam Prep: A hybrid course offering self-paced study materials, a real world LEED project tour, and classroom instruction for exam preparation.
- LEED AP O+M Exam Prep: The LEED AP Operations and Maintenance (O+M) certification preparation course addresses whole building cleaning and maintenance issues (including chemical use), recycling programs, exterior maintenance, and systems upgrades.
- LEED AP BD+C Exam Prep: The LEED AP Building Design + Construction (BD+C) course is a hybrid class offering self-paced study materials, five webinars, a real world LEED project tour, and classroom instruction for exam preparation.
Tuition for the six-week courses includes books and fees. Registered students also will receive free study materials, one exam voucher, and a one-year membership to the U.S. Green Building Council local chapter funded through a grant provided by Bank of America.Back to Top
