Did you know that almost all SDGBC monthly events count for LEED or GBCI continuing education? The San Diego Green Building Council can help maintain your professional credentials. As an official USGBC Education Partner, and AIA Continuing Education Provider, we can deliver GBCI- and AIA-approved education to our local professionals.
LEED Green Associates need 15 hours of continuing education every 2 years, 3 of which must be LEED-Specific. LEED AP's need twice as much, 30 hours every 2 years (6 LEED-Specific). And registered architects must complete 18 hours of AIA CES every year, 12 of which must be Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW).
Lucky for us, all sustainability education counts as HSW. Little known fact, every one of our Lunch+LEEDs counts for 1 hour of 'General' GBCI education. Each all-day LEED workshop we host at the Energy Innovation Center counts for 7 hours of both AIA CES and LEED-Specific continuing education. Other workshops will be listed if the hours of direct education count for either AIA or GBCI.
So - look out for the USGBC Education Partner Logo and AIA CES logo on our upcoming events and Events Calendar - and always feel free to reach out with any questions, we are happy to help!
