The IEEE-USA MOVE Community Outreach Initiative has been positively impacting the southeastern US through participation in disaster relief efforts and STEM education events. All MOVE volunteers need to go through training, and you will have that opportunity at SoutheastCon 2018 in St. Petersburg, FL. On Thursday, April 19, you can attend a special one-day Red Cross Disaster Services Technology 101 class, taught by a Red Cross instructor – this course normally takes several weeks! On Sunday, the MOVE Truck Systems Training will be held, from 12:30-6:30. This is a great opportunity to prepare now so you can help with a future disaster, or use the MOVE truck for a STEM event!

There is no cost to participate in the training, however travel expenses will not be covered by the Region or by MOVE.  If you are already planning on being at SoutheastCon on Thursday or are staying late Sunday, you should especially consider taking advantage of this opportunity to train, as it will add no additional cost.

LEED Green Associate (GA) Training

When: October 22nd 2017 – 1:00PM to 5:00 PM
Where: Vanderbilt University – Buttrick Hall – Room 201
Registration: https://leadinggreen.com/vanderbilt

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. The LEED Green Associate is the only professional designation to show employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field

To date, this course and its materials have proven to be instrumental in helping over 8000 students pass their respective exam at a 100% pass rate. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name!

A new LEED rating system (v4) was introduced last month and this training course is one of the few that has been updated to teach the current rating system.

If you are worried about your busy schedule, fear not, as the course is entirely recorded and you can watch the part that you cannot attend or take the whole course online.

This professional designation never expires and you will never have to retest if you pass now!

Early-Bird Cost: $300 ($200 for full time students)
To register for the class please visit: https://leadinggreen.com/vanderbilt
