WPL Publishing Schedules LEED Green
Associate Exam Preparation Webinar Series.
The series, which is set to begin Jan. 21, will cover green
design, construction, and operations as well as energy
efficiency, indoor environmental quality, stormwater
management, and other topics involving green buildings and
the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design program. The course has been approved
