What is LEED?
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (otherwise known as LEED) is a green building rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to provide a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. LEED certified buildings promote sustainable design and are primarily designed by a LEED AP who has been certified through the USGBC.
What is a LEED Accredited Professional? What is the LEED test? How do I become LEED certified?
Many people ask us "what is leed?". A LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) is a person who has met all the requirements for the LEED Accreditation Professional credentialing program and has demonstrated the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in the design process, to support and encourage integrated design, and to streamline a project's LEED application and certification process. The accreditation process involves taking and passing an exam as well as meeting certain prerequisites specific to one of the available credentialing "levels". LEED certification applies to buildings.
How does the LEED credentialing program work?
Before 2009, there was only one LEED credential: the LEED Accredited Professional, or LEED AP. Exam candidates could achieve this credential by following one of three tracks - LEED for New Construction, LEED for Commercial Interiors, or LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance. Each of which focused on the corresponding LEED rating system.
The LEED AP credentialing program now includes three levels of credentials. Each level indicates the level of knowledge, experience, and proficiency in green building design held by the Accredited Professional. The levels of LEED professional certification are as follows;
- · 1- LEED Green Associate
- · 2- LEED AP with Specialty
- · 3- LEED AP Fellow
Each of the above levels have unique pre-requisites, requirements, exam content, continuing education guide lines and associated fees.
