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 webinars 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.

Our webinars are LIVE in real-time and 100% interactive. Students can digitally raise their hand to ask questions, address the whole room via chat, or select individual attendees to communicate with.


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


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.



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 areas of focus. Real world project examples are used throughout the day and the instructor will organize the complicated green building strategies into a simple & easy to follow dialogue. The session concludes with an introduction to computer-based testing, and a road map for study preparation.

Topics Covered:

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

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 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.

The instructor, Lorne, was knowledgeable about the subject and test. His 4.5 hour overview of the test was very instructive.... The instructor, Lorne, was knowledgeable about the subject and test. His 4.5 hour overview of the test was very instructive. I am confident that I will pass the test after studying the supplemental materials, which includes a book-length pdf and 4 mock tests, that Lorne provides.
