The Fundamentals of Sustainability curriculum provides basic skills for those who want to enter the field and upgrading of skills for those presently in the construction field.  Based on an overview of sustainability and LEED in general and followed by LEED-specific competencies required for Green Associate certification, completion of the certificate provides the knowledge and skills to sit for the Green Associate’s exam and prepares an individual for working in the construction field. High school graduate reading and writing skills are expected, as development of technical reports and use of technical manuals are required in these courses. Math skills should include practical knowledge of algebra, basic trigonometry and geometry.

Credits earned may be applied toward the Engineering Technology/Sustainable Design Concentration, A.A.S.  degree.

Courses in each level (Foundation and Core) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
