- 10 Ways To Get Involved
Education programs advance the Chapter’s mission:
- Enhance knowledge about design, construction and operation of green buildings.

Our Education Program consists of:

The LEED Green Associate credential demonstrates a solid and current foundation in green building principles and practices. LEED GA denotes basic knowledge of green design, construction and operations. LEED Green Associates enjoy a broad understanding of sustainability that bolsters their careers and enhances their lives.
LEED Green Associates earn their credential by passing a two-hour, computer-based exam comprising 100 randomly delivered multiple-choice questions. Access the candidate handbook for exam policies and procedures.
All LEED Green Associates are required to maintain their credential through continuing education. The Chapter provides CMP credit education opportunities.
