Below is a press release. For some reason it did not come with the usual header identifying point of origin, just the email address, U.S. Coast Guard  uscoastguard@service.govdelivery.com. Nice to see some emphasis on professional development.

It talks about LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification but does not say what that is. There is an explanation here
