BOSTON - TAC, a building automation, security systems, and energy services company, is offering the TAC LEED® Accredited Professional (AP) Training Program to qualified partners. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation distinguishes building professionals who have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and the LEED Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

“The TAC LEED AP Training Program is a natural outgrowth of our commitment to energy efficiency and green design,” said Jeff Drees, president of TAC Americas.

LEED APs use their knowledge of the LEED Rating System and its application to integrate environmentally sustainable design features into projects and streamline the LEED certification process. To qualify as a LEED-certified facility, new or existing buildings must score points based on items such as site sustainability, water efficiency, optimizing energy performance, maintaining a healthy indoor environment, and using renewable resources, among others.

“Pursuing LEED certification is not only good for the environment, it makes great business sense for building owners as well,” said Lee Ginn, president of EMCOR Services Integrated Solutions, a single-source provider of engineering, installation, and operational expertise serving California and the Southeast U.S., and an authorized TAC partner. “Businesses that embrace sustainability and environmental stewardship outperform their competitors financially because customers are more willing to support these businesses when given the opportunity.”

The TAC LEED AP program is only available to TAC partners who are exclusively representing TAC’s building automation solutions. For qualified participants, TAC will cover all the necessary fees and provide study materials, including a step-by-step guide to help participants prepare for and pass the LEED AP exam.

“Our partners are a key component of TAC’s success, and the LEED AP Training initiative is an example of the resources we make available to support them,” said Robert Klein, vice president, Partners, for TAC. “Through programs like this, our partners gain additional knowledge and expertise that they in turn use in the field to provide the best solutions for our customers.”
