Standing Room Only for Marymount Reston’s first #LEED Course

Marymount University’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) course on September 7 was an unqualified success, attracting 22 students who filled the university’s seminar room at the Reston Center.

A full classroom takes part in Marymount’s first LEED 201 course on September 7.

U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) instructor Rebecca Flora facilitated the LEED 201 course that included participants from as far away as Tennessee and North Carolina. The group represented a variety of disciplines representing the fields of interior design, architecture, real estate and facility maintenance and construction.

LEED 201 is an eight-hour course required by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) to gain its LEED Green Associate credential. Additional LEED credentials include Interior Design & Construction, Building Design & Construction, Neighborhood Development and building Operations & Maintenance.

Marymount will announce plans for additional LEED courses in the near future.
