USGBC Approves Online IREM Course on “Sustainable Real Estate Management”
The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) has announced that its course “Sustainable Real Estate Management” (SRMOO1) has been approved for continuing education credit for LEED Professionals by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). With the acceptance of the course, IREM becomes an approved USGBC Education Provider, which are third-party organizations offering the highest-quality education that has been peer reviewed and endorsed by USGBC.

“IREM members are committed to adopting sustainable building operating practices to help ensure that the properties they manage are environmentally sound, healthy places to live, work, and shop,” says O. Randall Woodbury, IREM president. “USGBC’s recognition of the value of our green course in fostering sustainability and promoting efficient energy management both reflects and reinforces that commitment.”

The course was designed and developed with IREM member-experts in sustainable or "green" real estate management, and focuses on common sense, cost-effective ways to meet owner, tenant, and resident demand for “green” real estate and increase a property’s NOI through sustainable real estate management techniques. The self-guided course features open enrollment, enabling individuals to begin and return to it at any time. It requires approximately 6 hours to complete.

The following specific topics are addressed:
  • Sustainable property operations.
  • Increasing energy efficiency.
  • Increasing water efficiency.
  • Improving indoor environmental quality (IEQ).
  • How to reduce, reuse and recycle.
  • The sustainable real estate management company.
“Sustainable Real Estate Management” also is eligible for elective credit toward the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Green Designation. Those interested in earning this designation must be active members of NAR (either as a Realtor or Institute Affiliate member) and maintain membership in the Green Resource Council (www.greenresourcecouncil.org).
