LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. Buildings can become LEED Certified as can people! The LEED Green Associate is the only professional designation to show employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field.

To date, this course and its materials have proven to be instrumental in helping over 8000 students pass their respective exam at a 100% pass rate. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name!

This course meets the exam’s eligibility requirements and the USGBC charges a $100 (reduced for students) fee for the actual exam which can be taken at any time at your nearest Prometric center. Save money by reserving your spot today and make a positive difference in your career! If you are worried about your busy schedule, fear not, as the course is entirely recorded and you can watch the part that you cannot attend or take the whole course online.

This professional designation never expires and you will never have to retest if you pass now!

Early-Bird Cost: $300 ($200 for full time students)

Sustainable Development Goals Alliance (SDGA) Youth Training Day

Code Design to Win Challenge

We are looking for computer science, engineering, arts, or business students to compete. The virtual challenge dates run from October 6th - 17th. After the virtual challenge, we invite the top 75 students (50 coders and 25 designers) to Waterloo Region in January for the finals weekend. During this weekend, students get to check out the Waterloo Region tech ecosystem, interview with local tech companies and win up to $5000. This is a great opportunity for students to network and interview with our sponsor companies (Google, Sonova, TD Lab, Deloitte, Manulife, ZTR Control Systems, Axonify, Oracle NetSuite, Consensys, and Thalmic Labs). The preliminaries will be held online at UCalgary. Participants can begin the challenge at any point throughout this time period, but once they begin they only have 2 hours to complete the challenge. You can find a video recap from last year's finals and the registration link up on the CDTW page.
