FARMINGTON, N.Y. - Carrier Corp. announced that it has been named a U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Education Provider. To earn this status, Carrier’s course materials were reviewed by a panel of USGBC peers and deemed to provide the high level of quality required for training Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) professionals. The courses and workshops supporting LEED Accredited Professional and Green Associates credential maintenance are administered through Carrier University.

The first course Carrier will offer as a USGBC Education Provider will be “Designing HVAC Systems to Optimize LEED Points,” which will be held during a U.S. Sustainability Symposium training tour designed for consulting engineers, design-build contractors, and facility managers. Carrier's Sustainability Symposiums offer a series of workshops that educate participants on the most current topics of green building and sustainable design and its impact on the selection and design of building systems. Successful completion of each course earns continuing education hours (CEHs) which count toward the Green Building Certification Institute’s (GBCI) Professional Development Continuing Education Class (GBCI) requirement for credential maintenance.

“We are pleased to recognize Carrier’s commitment to the development of rigorous training materials and courses to educate design and building professionals working to develop sustainable solutions and built environments,” stated Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO, USGBC.

“Carrier has long been dedicated to training the industry on environmentally responsible products and sustainable design solutions. Becoming a USGBC Education Provider is another validation of our expertise and commitment to developing a comprehensive, relevant sustainability curriculum,” stated John Mandyck, Carrier’s vice president for Sustainability and Environmental Strategies. “As a founding member of the USGBC, we are proud to further strengthen our educational offering to the industry as an approved education provider.”
