1 Education & Training Plan Renewable Energy Specialist Online MyCAA Information Tuition: $3600 (1 exam included for LEED) MyCAA Course Code: LIT-RES3 Course Contact Hours: 365 Hours Program Duration: 6 Months (Please note these courses are approved as one course block) This training program combines: Renewable Energy Specialist Sustainability Professional LEED Green Associate Program Description This very comprehensive program covers three areas Renewable Energy, Sustainability Professional and LEED Green Associate. In the Renewable Energy Specialist course you will learn the main characteristics of the emerging generation of technologies which will be employed to provide energy for the power grid over the next 20 years. This course covers solar energy in its various forms, such as photovoltaic, thermal and thermodynamic energy conversion, taking into account the various issues associated with the connection of these solar plants to the grid. After completing this course, you should be able to: Define the core elements of photovoltaic systems and solar energy, Identify features of wind system energy, Comprehend energy systems based on water and geothermal production, Define main features of biofuels and bio-gas and Comprehend the process of energy production from burning wood. In the Sustainability Professional course exposes the student to financially, environmentally, and socially responsible objectives that are supported by strategies and achieved by clear tactics that have measurable outcomes. The student is introduced to methods of implementing technologies and practices and will also learn how to measure the consequent social and environmental performance for written reports and persuasive presentations. After completing this course, you should be able to: Comprehend the core elements of energy production, Identify various sources of energy and the features of each, Identify methods of energy production for electricity and travel, Comprehend the elements of smart energy consumption and Identify key components of environmental management and leadership. Lastly in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate course you will learn the foundational concepts and standards for the residential, commercial and institutional green building industry. This course prepares students to sit for the LEED Green Associate exam and forms the foundation for a career as a LEED Professional. Course content covers green building core concepts and strategies, sustainable thinking and implementation, LEED standards and rating systems, and an overview of the LEED Green Associate credentialing exam. After completing this course, you should be able to: Define the core elements of photovoltaic systems and solar energy Identify features of wind system energy Comprehend energy systems based on water and geothermal production Define main features of biofuels and bio-gas Comprehend the process of energy production from burning wood Comprehend the core elements of energy production Identify various sources of energy and the features of each Identify methods of energy production for electricity and travel Comprehend the elements of smart energy consumption
