*About LD2XX Courses & LEED Professional Exams [GLANCE BOX?]
The courses LD201, 202 & 203 include components offered in partnership with our US-based
educational partners. The classes incorporate online tutoring conducted via high bandwidth
connections offered in the training campus. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design. LEED is a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and
operation of high performance GREEN (i.e., energy efficient and environmentally friendly)
buildings, homes and neighbourhoods. The LEED Professional Exams are administered by
the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) for professionals seeking to earn
credentials and certificates. The exams test knowledge based on the U.S. Green Building
Council's LEED Rating Systems.
