Traveling to Get Your LEED Certification
Do you need to get your LEED certification this year? If so then you might want to think about taking an exam in a city that is not the one where you live. You can travel to a 2-day workshop in almost any major city in the United States and study for the exam there.
Reasons that you might want to travel to get your certification to become a LEED Green Associate include:
- You might be able to write off a portion of the trip on your taxes. This is a business expense and may be able to count as business travel depending on your business. Talk to your accountant about this.
- You will be very focused on your classes. When you aren’t distracted by all that is going on at home you can really focus on what you need to learn in an intensive two-day workshop like this.
- You will get a chance to travel. Ultimately the reason to do this is to get away for a little bit and to see a new city while still doing something productive with your time.
You can take the courses that you need to pass your LEED exam in your own hometown. Why would you do that, though, when you have the option to travel somewhere for a nice weekend instead?!
