THIS LEED EXAM PREP COURSE IS FULLY UPDATED FOR LEED VERSION 4.0!

If you are just beginning your career in green building or if you are not currently a LEED AP, the LEED Green Associate Accreditation is for you! LEED Green Associate is the introductory-level credential under the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) program, and is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council after passing the credentialing exam. This credential demonstrates a general understanding of all of the LEED rating systems and corresponding green design strategies.

Our LEED Green Associate exam prep seminars provide an introduction to green building and sustainable design principles, specifically as they relate to USGBC's LEED green building rating system. It prepares individuals to pass the LEED Green Associate exam on the first try, and is the first step in becoming a LEED professional.

 

Why Should You Attend This LEED Green Associate Exam Prep Training?

1) The Green Associate Exam Handbook contains over a dozen separate documents and resources that are considered "primary sources" for the exam. This seminar combines the most important information from these resources into an accessible, comprehensive workshop, creating a focused and organized study path for exam candidates.

2) The LEED Green Associate Seminar is an interactive, intimate and intense collaborative learning experience including analysis of real-world examples of LEED principles and certified projects; study techniques that will help you become exam-prepared in as little as 20 hours; supplementary study materials; on-going phone/email support from your instructor until your test date; and more!

3) USGBC requires you to pass the LEED Green Associate exam before you can become a LEED AP. It is recommended that those seeking to become a LEED AP should start with this training course to gain a base level of knowledge before proceeding to the more technical LEED AP+ exam material.

 

Course Overview:

The purpose of this course is to familiarize the individual with the required information for the LEED Green Associate Exam as a supplement to individual preparation. We begin with an overview of sustainability and the integrated design process and then proceed to detail the individual LEED credit categories and corresponding sustainable design strategies. "Real world" project examples are used throughout the day and the instructor will organize the complicated green building principles into a simple and easy to follow dialogue. The session concludes with an introduction to the LEED exam process, and a "road map" for continuing your studies after the course.

 

Topics To Be Covered Include:

  • Basic Green Building Principles LEED
  • Core Concepts
  • LEED Process & Integration
  • Technical Analysis for LEED Credits / Strategies
  • Exam tips and logistics

Earning Your LEED Green Associate Credential

After you attend the course we recommend reserving 20 hours of additional study time. Once you feel ready to take the exam you will register for the LEED Green Associate exam with the US Green Building Council. The exam fee is $200 for USGBC company members ($250 for non-members). The exam is taken in-person at a Prometric Testing Center, and appointments are available 6 days a week, year-round.

 

Maintaining Your LEED Green Associate Credential

Once you pass the credentialing exam, candidates must renew their credential every two years under the LEED Credential Maintenance Program by completing 15 hours of LEED continuing education and paying a $50 renewal fee.

However, she was very rushed as she arrived over an hour late.

Some of the questions were answered well, while others were not.

I think another way to help with this class would be able to have folks from different walks of life, EVS Managers, Engineers, Maintenance, BSC's, building owners etc. be able to add to the class. Also, being able to walk a building and see what they had to do to achieve LEED status and talk about their process and meeting some of the different criteria. I would gladly attend a second day of classes to be able to get these real life experiences during the LEED the process and also hear about how their building is actually measuring up to the goals that were originally set.
