Carrier Named USGBC Provider

FARMINGTON, N.Y. - Carrier Corp. was recently named a U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Education Provider.

To earn this status, Carrier submitted its course materials for review by a panel of USGBC peers. Its courses and workshops administered through Carrier University were deemed to provide the high level of quality required for training Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) professionals.

“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,” said Rick Fedrizzi, USGBC president and CEO.

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 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.

“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,” said 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.”
