The Mechanical Contractors Association of America recently released its new “Green Associate Training Module.”

MCAA officials said the module is the country’s only DVD-based LEED green associate test prep program.

The module prepares MCAA contractors and their staff for the newly developed Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green associate professional credential, designed by the U.S. Green Building Council.

For project managers and those wishing to take their education a step further by earning a LEED-accredited professional designation, the new program also acts as the first step in the process.

In the last five years, MCAA and the Mechanical Service Contractors of American have worked to prepare over 1,000 mechanical industry professionals to become LEED-accredited professionals through their live training programs. The association’s officials said that the new training module is the next step that allows contractors to prepare at their own pace, without missing time out of the office or incurring travel costs.
