• CaGBC LEED Strategic Practices Program

    Distance Learning Online

    The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) offers the LEED Strategic Practices (LSP) Program. According to the CaGBC, the LSP Program "provides hands-on experience with the documentation and tools used on actual LEED projects, giving participants the essential skills and knowledge to begin working on LEED projects immediately after completing the program."

    Individuals who complete the seven required courses (Introduction to LEED and the Integrated Design Process, Construction Credits and Process, Sites Development and Water Efficiency Credits, Energy and Atmosphere Credits, The Commissioning Process, Indoor Air Quality Credits, and LEED Certification Process and Procedures) are eligible to receive the LSP Program certification from the CaGBC. CaGBC awards the certification. However, George Brown College Continuing Education has been recognized by the CaGBC as a partner through which you can register for the LSP Program’s academic course requirements.

    For more information about the LSP Program, visit the CaGBC LEED Strategic Practices Program web page.


    Program Delivery Method:

    The courses in this program are online courses delivered through CaGBC Central, an interactive e-learning platform. They consist of a combination of recorded videos, individual assignments and assessments. Each week, you will be required to view the presentation, complete one or more assignments and complete an assessment. Online instructional support is available throughout each course. You will have six weeks from the day you receive access to a course to complete the course. Each time you complete one of these courses, you will be able to download a certificate of completion directly from the course’s virtual classroom.

    Career Opportunities

    Career options typically include junior positions within the green building industry.
