California Company Trains LEED Professionals

PTL Exam Prep prepares the next generation of green building professionals.

Elk Grove, CA, February 25, 2010 --( PTL Exam Prep celebrates second year of helping contractors, engineers, architects and others obtain the training and accreditation needed to become green-building professionals.

"Green building is the way of America's future," said President Edward Cornejo. "Sustainable buildings protect fragile ecosystems, produce long-term economic savings and stimulate job growth. At PTL Exam Prep, we understand that employees must be ready to meet these new and exciting challenges."

The need for eco-friendly construction is growing, as businesses look for ways to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and homeowners take measures to reduce their energy bills. Increasingly, the federal, and state and city governments are requiring that new and renovated government buildings meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification, which is the rating standard for certifying the sustainability of today’s building projects.

Green building will create an estimated 7.9 million new jobs by the year 2013, according to a study recently released by the U.S. Green Building Council. The green job market is growing, and LEED Accredited Professionals are standing on the front line.

"Eco-conscious buildings are the future, and LEED professionals are the ones making this movement happen," said Cornejo.

To meet the demands of the green-construction industry, PTL Exam Prep offers multiple training opportunities that help people obtain LEED AP accreditation or become a LEED Green Associate, both of which designate knowledge and experience of green-building principles and practices.

The company also offers a Contractors Green Builder Certification program, designed to recognize corporations that are prepared to meet the challenges of working on projects that incorporate sustainable design elements. PTL Exam Prep holds training classes across the nation, live online webinars and internship programs. The company also produces exam study materials related to the subjects of green-building operations and maintenance, building design and construction, interior design and construction, and more.
