Ayla Jefferson is the first in the U.S. to achieve the new Certified Sustainability Professional certification. The Professional Development Council approved this new combination designation in May 2017 to provide opportunities for licensed architects, professional engineers and code officials to become more involved with the Code Council.
“I am so proud of my new International Code Council certification,” Jefferson states. “I am the first one in the nation getting this new Certified Sustainability Professional certificate. So far, there are only two certificate holders and we are both proud Californians. This new certificate has been created with much effort by the Sustainability Membership Council, and through approval by the Certification Committee in Arlington, Texas, in May.”
