By Allison Halliday | June 18, 2013

Poplar recently launched an online network for the green building professional community. It is the company's mission to connect to green building professionals around the globe, to deliver the highest quality green building education, and to help its members recognize new job opportunities.

It doesn't cost anything to join Poplar, and members are able to create profiles to promote their work experience, education and professional credentials. In addition they are able to connect with anyone on the Internet through interactive questions and answers. Members can also choose to receive e-mail alerts when new information is posted on green building topics and interests.

Rob Freeman, founder of Poplar said, "After releasing our Beta site at the Greenbuild Conference in San Francisco, it's great to formally launch and start to roll out our LEED and green building education products and partnerships. We just getting started delivering the highest quality green building training available."

Poplar offers a full LEED Green Associate training curriculum.  Members gain access to free practice tests for the LEED Green Associate and NAB CEP solar photovoltaic exams. Members also received other tools such as a comprehensive LEED Credential Maintenance Program guide. LEED professionals who are enrolled in the LEED credential maintenance can become contributors and are able to submit guest posts about green building or L EED that can be published in the Poplar News section. They can claim 3 LEED continuing education hours for each article published.

Poplar is in partnership with GreenStep Education to offer LEED AP exam preparation tools and access to the LEED Project Experience Program. This offers the professionals the opportunity to work on an LEED registered project from almost anywhere as it is 100% online, and it provides eligibility for the LEED AP exam. Alex Spilger, founder of GreenStep has years of experience overseeing high profile LEED certification projects for companies such as Skype, Twitter, Google, Oracle and AirBnB.
