I took Lorne’s Class for the LEED Green Associate examination. Not only the free online material available was helpful, but a couple of years after I attended and was ready to write it, he was kind enough to grant me access to the paid material, only available for a year after taking the class. The mock exams were the direct hit and I passed writing the test the first time.
E.I.T., M.A.Sc., LEED Green Associate – Research Assistant
I took Lorne’s LEED training courses and would highly recommend him for those preparing for the LEED Green Associate or AP exam. His workshop was engaging and informative. His study tools and methods were excellent, enabling me to focus my studies, and pass the exam with a score of 195 out of 200.

I took Lorne’s LEED Green Associate course at Michigan State University. If you want to pass the LEED Green Assoicate test as soon as possible and not spend what most LEED training services cost take Lorne’s class. The part of the course I found most helpful was the online practice tests. They streamlined what needed to be known for the actual test and also gave understanding to why the answers to the practice tests were correct. He was also available after the class was over to answer any questions even though his courses required him to constantly travel all across the United States and Canada before the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks Lorne.
