    Course Collections
    Each LEED professional with a specialty must acquire a number of continuing education hours to maintain their credentials. AEC Daily has created collections of courses to help meet these requirements. Take a look:

    LEED Credentialing Maintenance

    LEED GA’s must complete 15 CE (continuing education) hours biennially, with three of those being LEED-specific. One type of approved education is ERB-approved (GBCI - education review board approved) content which includes courses, workshops, presentations, classes, or articles assigned by an instructor. AEC Daily makes it simple to satisfy the LEED GA CE requirements with our course collections. The courses listed in this collection are all ERB-approved online courses and satisfy the non-LEED-specific course requirements.

    LEED AP BD+C are required to take 30 CE (continuing education) hours biennially, 6 of which must be LEED specific hours. Among the ways to earn CE hours is to take ERB approved activities, which includes online courses. AEC Daily makes it simple and inexpensive to meet these requirements. We have created a list of courses that apply to the required topic categories for BD+C credentialing maintenance. You can find all 24 of LEED non-specific hours on our site.

    LEED Prescriptive Credentialing Maintenance

    LEED AP’s without Specialty can choose the prescriptive credentialing maintenance option for earning a specialty. They must take 30 hours of courses; 24 LEED non-specific within required categories outlined by GBCI, and 6 LEED-specific. This program ends Fall 2011 and once finished, specialties can only be earned by taking an exam. AEC Daily makes it simple and inexpensive to attain a specialty. We have created a list of courses that apply to the required prescriptive hours for BD+C prescriptive credentialing maintenance and you can find all 24 LEED non-specific hours, on our site.

    BPM Select, developed exclusively for the AEC community, provides direct access to The Blue Book Network’s highly targeted database of over six million web pages from over 13,000 national and regional building product manufacturers!

    Unlike product catalogues, BPM Select provides the most up-to-date information (delivering direct links to the manufacturer’s own website). And unlike the major search engines, BPM Select returns only relevant results so there is no need to waste time sorting through hundreds of irrelevant results. Search results within BPM Select are organized by CSI and grouped together by manufacturer, making it fast and easy to review all products from a single company. Most results are returned in an industry standard ‘ProView’, which includes a full-color product gallery and easy links to BIM, CAD and Spec detail. Having this standard ‘ProView format makes it simple for users to find and navigate through the manufacturer’s information because it is presented consistently for each manufacturer in the results set. BPM Select also offers direct access to The Blue Book database for sourcing related suppliers and installers of the specific building products selected. Users have the ability to find the products, suppliers and installers they need - all within one free building product search engine!

    Plus --- BPM Select can be added to the Revit or AutoCad Toolbar by downloading the free content connector plug-in! To start searching for the building products you need to specify today, please visit bpmselect.com or, call Dan Burnside, BPM Select Product Manager at 800-431-2584, ext 3443.
