Continuing education and LEED Professionals go hand in hand. If you need to earn CEUs, you might check out courses offered by NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research), Gainesville, FL. The organization has just had four of its modules approved by the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council), Washington, for continuing education hours. With these new course approvals, NCCER can now help LEED Professionals meet all of the required continuing education hours established by the GBCI (Green Building Certification Institute), Washington.
“NCCER’s attainment of continuing education hours for these courses offers credence to the role the HVAC curriculum plays in training technicians, as well as the sustainable operations and maintenance community,” said Matthew Todd, HVAC subject matter expert and LEED AP for Entek Corp., Vancouver, WA.
All four modules come from NCCER’s current HVAC curriculum and include:
- Energy Conservation Equipment
- Air Quality Equipment
- Indoor Air Quality
- Alternative Heating and Cooling Equipment.
These modules are readily available individually or as a spiral-bound unit titled Green Topics for HVAC. For more information on all green updates, visit NCCER’s online catalog at www.nccer.org .—Gary L. Parr
