Green Associate Exam Prep Course
The Green Associate Credential is the globally recognized foundational sustainability credential. Whether you plan to be involved directly or indirectly in LEED, this credential carried by many sustainability professionals communicates that you are continually learning sustainability in your profession. The Green Associates is the first step to getting your LEED Accredited Professional (AP) and then your LEED Green Rater or LEED Fellow if you wish to continue to advance.

Brett Little, LEED AP Homes, and Green Rater have been instructing, learning, engaging, consulting, and rating LEED projects for over a decade. While traditional Green Associate courses often focus on the commercial sector, Brett will bring a unique perspective from his career in residential green building to this class as the places we live become more important to the business sector with work from home and buildings being converted to living spaces as we face a major housing shortage.
The course cost is free for GreenHome Institute members and West MI Green Affordable Housing team members. Other agencies may provide stipends or discounts as well. The full course cost is $100.00, but the first module is available to watch for free.
