Meet Our First-Class LEED Strategic Practices Program Instructors

The LEED Strategic Practices (LSP) Program is an affordable, seven-course certificate program delivered via virtual classroom. The program provides hands-on experience with the documentation and tools used on actual LEED projects, giving participants the essential skills and knowledge need to work on LEED projects. While our online LSP program makes it easy to learn from home or the office at your own pace, you benefit from access to our first-class instructors.

LSP instructors are experts in their fields, professionals with significant experience that’s directly relevant to the course material.

Here’s a peek at some of the instructors you will learn from as part of the LSP program:

A testimonial from Victoria Sharpe, Cohort Two graduate and recipient of the “Job Shadow Opportunity” that is offered to an accomplished student who successfully completes the program:

"I strongly recommend the LSP Program to those looking to launch a career in the green building industry. The program provided me with a solid educational foundation for better understanding the LEED certification process, and the green building industry in general. The LSP Program has given me a comprehensive understanding of the submission package requirements for the LEED Certification process. I have also gained a good foundation of the credit categories, their intents and requirements."

"The curriculum in the program was very well organized, and succinctly presented by knowledgeable instructors with extensive experience in the green building industry. The combination of pre-recorded and live presentations provided a great learning environment for working professionals, since it allowed the flexibility to learn according to one’s own schedule, while also providing the opportunity to interact with the instructors and ask questions. The online forums allowed for helpful interaction and collaboration with fellow students."
