Green Building Methods

In this 100% online course, students learn about green building methods, techniques and practices and how they can be applied to planning practice. The course focuses on concepts associated with Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design® (LEED®). LEED® is a green building certification program developed by the U.S. Green Building Council® (USGBC®) that recognizes building practices that save money, reduce water consumption, improve indoor air quality, make better material choices, and overall have less negative impacts to the environment.

This course can be taken for credit by current Ohio State students by enrolling in an offering of CRPLAN 5160: Green Building Methods for Planning. 

The course is offered to professionals seeking continuing education credits through the College of Engineering Professional and Distance Education Programs office for a course fee. Four continuing education credits (CEUs) are granted upon successful completion of the course.
