LEED Consultant Training

LEED consultants earn between $75-$250 per hour based on their experience and understanding of the LEED certification process. Through a thoughtful and practical approach, GreenStep Education offers the LEED Consultant Training Program to engage green building and LEED professionals in LEED Registered Projects where they can improve their understanding of the LEED certification process.

The GreenStep LEED Consultant Training program is for architects, designers and consultants wishing to start or grow a green building consulting practice. This program is applicable to LEED version 4, and to LEED for New Construction (BD+C), LEED for Commercial Interiors (ID+C) and LEED for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance (O+M).

If you are a green building professional who, due to geographic challenges, or other constraints, are unable to secure work on a LEED Registered Project, this program is perfect for you.

LEED consultant training helps you go beyond the basics to gain a deeper level of understanding of LEED, the core concepts, fundamental credit strategies and their intents and the various phases of LEED certification.

100% Online Program

Each team member may participate in the project from anywhere. Participants who complete the program will gain valuable experience and receive a Certificate of Completion suitable for framing.

The GreenStep LEED Consultant Training Program provides you with actual training you can apply to LEED certification projects. This program is not based on theory... These are real world projects located in San Francisco and the assignments are based on actual LEED consulting engagements.

Using a combination of online video, and downloadable project documentation, you will work through nine (9) separate online LEED project assignments that are relevant to almost every LEED certification project. We provide you with a clear outline for completing this training program... However, you may choose your own approach to completing each project assignment in any order. We have designed the program so that it can be completed at your own pace, credit by credit, as you choose.

There is no quiz or test in this program. Upon completion of the project assignments, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from GreenStep Education.
