The LTS LCA Certificate Training Programs are designed to guide students through purposefully crafted classes that teach the skill sets necessary to achieve a desired level of LCA proficiency. Whether looking to master the SimaPro software, successfully manage an LCA project from start to finish, or become a top level certified ACLCA practitioner; choose the training program specifically designed to take you there.
The LTS LCA training certification program couples LCA modeling skills with LCA interpretation and report writing skills. After completing the LCA Practitioner program of study, and meeting the ACLCA prerequisites, students have the knowledge to sit for the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment LCACP exam.
Our training certification program does not require courses to be completed within a minimum time period. Certificates will be awarded to individuals who have successfully completed the course(s) required and passed each course’s exam (80% or greater), in accordance with ASTM E2659-18. The end of course assessments are a 20-question multiple choice quiz that takes less than 20 minutes to complete.
