AISC Rolls Out Sustainability Course
Posted by Tasha Weiss on July 12, 2011 at 9:34 AM.

AISC’s new course, “Sustainability and Steel,” has been approved by The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and will soon be offered for one hour of LEED/GBCI continuing education credit. Those who attend these live learning presentations will report the credit hour directly to GBCI and receive certificates of completion from AISC. Stay tuned for more information about when and where this new course will be available.


The green building movement is increasing at a rapid pace. More and more building owners, architects, engineers and contractors are realizing the benefits of sustainable design and construction practices in improving not only the longevity of the earth’s environment but also the quality of the built environment. This course explains why environmental impact should be a consideration with any new or renovated building and discusses the sustainable attributes of structural steel.
