23 January 2012 – Green Education Services has created an app which allows students to prepare for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design exams.
GEC chief executive officer Zach Rose said while there were plenty of options for students to purchase printed flashcards for the LEED examinations, there were no apps that allowed study directly from an iPhone,
The application includes more than 350 flashcards and instructor support New features include categorical studying, a “remember position” feature, a shuffle option to mix up the cards, and the option to contact a LEED teacher while studying the cards.
“Attaining a LEED credential is of the utmost importance,” Mr Rose said. “For those seeking employment in the construction industry, it is literally a prerequisite to even be considered for any job opportunities. Furthermore, companies are now required to have LEED professionals on staff in order to submit bids for professional services.”
