To date, this course and its materials have proven to be instrumental in helping over 8000 students pass their respective exam at a 100% pass rate. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name! This course is instructed by a USGBC Faculty member and meets the exam’s eligibility requirements and the USGBC charges a $100 (reduced for students) fee for the actual exam which can be taken at any time at your nearest Prometric center.

At age 15, Kosick's right leg was amputated after pain in his ankle turned out to be cancer. After getting his first prosthetic leg, he learned to walk and eventually run. Kosick was on the U.S. Disabled Alpine Ski Team and competed in the 1998 and 2002 Winter Paralympics. Today, he's a high school social worker in Broome County, a lacrosse and swim coach, and avid obstacle course racer. George Catalano, professor of biomedical engineering, will discuss his experiences in ground-breaking work at Binghamton University. Prior to 2017, his department had no involvement with prosthetics, yet his students used 3-D printing to produce an artificial limb for a campus employee who lost a hand in an industrial accident.
