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

If you are just beginning your career in green building or are interested in working on LEED certification projects, the LEED Green Associate professional accreditation is for you! Green Associate is the introductory-level credential under the LEED program, and demonstrates a general understanding of all the LEED rating systems. Additionally, if you wish to become a LEED AP, you must pass the LEED Green Associate exam first.

This 2-day seminar provides 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. Click here to view the course syllabus.

 

Why should you attend this seminar? 

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) All AIA members who attend this LEED Green Associate training will receive 14.0 HSW credits! Non-AIA members can use our certificate of completion for self-reporting the 14 contact hours of instruction.

3) 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-ready; supplementary study materials; hundreds of practice exam questions; on-going phone/email support from your instructor until your test date; and more!

Taking the LEED Green Associate Exam

After you attend the course we recommend reserving 20 hours of additional study time to review and take the provided practice exams. Once you feel ready to take the actual exam you will register for the LEED Green Associate exam with the U.S. 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. There are 100 weighted questions, multiple choice, and a passing score of 170 or higher out of 200 points is required to earn the credential.

 

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.

 

Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)

LEED was developed by the  U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as a green building rating system used to recognize buildings and developments that are designed, constructed, and operated in a sustainable way. LEED Certification is awarded to outstanding green building projects, and individuals can earn a LEED credential to designate their expertise in the LEED rating systems.

As I expressed to Joan in the class, I was very surprised at how she took a topic (course) that I anticipated being boring, into a really interesting course. Her teaching methods kept me engaged, which in turn helped me remember the majority of the information that was being presented.

Unfortunately, the commute to and from Sorrento Valley was terrible. 2hours to and from, and that was just my commute. 4 hours on the road sucks. Especially when I am 19 miles away. I believe I will pass the exam, and our instructor left his availability if we need to contact him. We did have someone in our class that talked a bit too much, and he knew more, which took away from the learning we needed. The instructor picked up on it, and tried to make sure that everyone was included in the dialogue not just the know it all. He was very distracting, and took away from a couple other guys who were having some difficulty with the material. But it is up to us to make sure we get the studying in, memorize what we need and get the exam over with. I have already scheduled my exam for next month, and hope I do well to pass. The rest is up to me to cover the material and put the study time in. Thank you.
