“Breaking Ground: The Future of Green Building,” the newest course series from the Green Building Research Institute (GBRI) has been approved by both GBCI and the American Institute of Architects to provide LEED and AIA professionals with continuing education credits. Professionals who complete a course are eligible to receive 30 GBCI approved CE Hours and 28 AIA approved HSW LUs (including 6 LEED Specific BD+C, ID+C & O+M CE hours). A wide range of topics will be covered, including: LEED v4, WELL Building Standard, Healthcare and School Certification Projects, Biomimicry, Building Level Energy and Water Metering, Ecotourism, Sustainability in the Supply Chain and more.
Delivered virtually live and in an on-demand format, the courses gives professionals up to two full years in which to complete the curriculum, making it easy to complete the continuing education requirements required to maintain LEED and/or AIA credentials.
GBRI courses give professionals the ability to pause/stop anywhere and, upon returning, pick up right where they left off. Though finding LEED and AIA continuing education courses that meet the requirements of both USGBC and AIA can be confusing, GBRI makes it easy by having achieved pre-approval through both organizations. In an initiative to make the process seamless for their students, complimentary auto-reporting to both organizations is provided.
