First-time opportunity for certified LEED credits
Bell & Gossett, a provider of education for the hydronic heating and plumbing industries, has announced its training course schedule for the second quarter of 2012. The free training seminars are offered at the Bell & Gossett Little Red Schoolhouse Education Center in Morton Grove, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, and are open to engineers, contractors and facility maintenance professionals.
New this quarter, the schoolhouse is now a certified provider of continuing education for LEED professionals as approved by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCITM). The schoolhouse’s large chilled water design seminar and modern hydronic system design basic seminar are the pump industry’s first courses to be approved by GBCI to provide credit toward the credential maintenance requirements of the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP certifications.
The content provided in the two seminars meets GBCI’s goals of facilitating access to high-quality professional development for those in the green building industry. The courses focus on the application of pumps and related products to enable water and energy conservation and improve building system efficiency.
The seminars are tailored to various job functions and areas of expertise and cover a wide range of important topics. The lead seminar instructors are LEED-Accredited Professionals. Upon completion of the three-day seminars, 1.7 CEU credits are awarded to graduates.
