Question: Sommer asks: I represent the local Designers in Bermuda and I am looking for LEED CEU’s for the year. I was wondering if you offer such a thing? Or if not, could we discuss possibly a webinar via Skype to discuss various sustainable issues, products, systems, procedures, etc… Being Green in general. Thank you.
Answer: Hi Sommer, thank you for your question. Yes, you can earn CE hours for LEED in four different ways: Education, LEED project experience, volunteering and authorship.
Each of these options can contribute to continuing education hours to your account. You can find a list of LEED CMP courses for any specialty here. If you or your colleagues are interested in working on a LEED project, that is a great way to earn LEED continuing education. You can also earn an unlimited number of CE hours through authorship… If you would like to write an original article on green building and LEED, you can do so here. Volunteering opportunities are available through organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, and USGBC.
If you are actively involved in working with others in your area, you can work with a local USGBC chapter as a volunteer and earn continuing education that way, or by helping USGBC with LEED exam writing. This option is also a great convenience for people who are active. GBCI limits CE hours earned in this manner to 50% of total CE hours needed.
Let us know if you have any additional questions and thanks again!
