Attention Veterans! Take the LEED Professional exam for free

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

Looking to give yourself a career edge or qualify for a green job? The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reimburses the cost of the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP credential exams for U.S. military veterans, eligible dependents and reservists.

In accordance with the G.I. Bill, the VA will cover 100 percent of test fees per attempt, whether or not you pass the exam. And the agreement is retroactive, so any veteran who took a LEED exam after December 3, 2008 is eligible to have their exam fee expenses reimbursed.

USGBC has partnered with the VA since 2009 to ensure that all LEED professional credential exams are approved for coverage under the G.I. Bill.

Holding a LEED Green Associate credential demonstrates to the thriving sustainability industry that you have solid, foundational knowledge of green building principles and practices vital skills for full participation in the new green economy.

For veterans with experience working on LEED projects, a LEED AP with Specialty credential showcases its holders technical working knowledge of the LEED rating system.
