The Instructor:

Proven Results:

“I just took the exam and passed with a score of 181! As an architect and attorney, I'm a veteran of many licensing exams and associated prep classes. I must tell you, your course is one of the very best I've taken. It was very concise and well focused, with great exam-specific content. I was able to prepare effectively solely from the materials you provided. I would heartily recommend your course to anyone hoping to obtain a passing score. Many thanks.”
- R. Reiss, esq. AIA NCARB LEED AP

"GreenStep is the sole reason I passed the LEED Exam. Without Alex's tutelage, I would not have been able to pass this difficult test. He was instrumental in helping me understand the fundamentals and achieve proficiency with the LEED Rating System."
- Garrett Johnson, Assistant Project Manager, Plant Construction. LEED AP

“Alex, our five staffers that took your class have all taken the exam and passed. We are 5 for 5. As the leader of our company, I knew the day was well worth the investment when we finished up. But the results speak for themselves. We can’t wait to get our feet wet in real world applications. Thanks again for helping our staff down the path of accreditation.”

- P. Verdicchio, LEED AP, SEC Planning
