Coming soon: Translation aids for LEED credential exams

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

LEED’s impact resonates on a global stage, and its adopters, advocates and practitioners are growing more diverse every day.

There are LEED projects and LEED professionals in nearly 200 countries. To serve this demand, GBCI has translated several study resources and exams for the LEED professional credentials into Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and French.

Exam translation aid availability

LEED Green Associate (2009) Now Now Now   Now
LEED AP BD+C* (2009) Now March 28 March 28   Now

*For individuals interested in taking the LEED AP with specialty exam with a translation aid, please make sure to register for the standalone LEED Green Associate exam and the standalone LEED AP exam, as the combined LEED Green Associate and LEED AP exam is not available with a translation aid.

The LEEDv4 study guides are anticipated to be released in Fall 2014.
Hi Nora, You know when will publish the material v4 for the exam to Green Associate?

Hi Ila, LEED v4 Green Associate exam translation aids are now available.
Nora, actually I wanted know when the green associate study guide v4 and the core concepts third version will translated to portuguese, because now, only the version 2009 is translated.
Digital Marketing Manager, U.S. Green Building Council
Hi Illa, The Portuguese translation of the 3rd Edition of the Core Concepts Guide is undergoing translation and will be available for purchase by fall 2014. USGBC is also looking to our education partners to create v4 study guides, and we will be working with them to consider options for translating into other languages.

We're dreaming of guides in Russian :)

It would be good to have an official translation of the study guides. Maybe it could be part of a volunteer program, I know I would be interested in helping to translate the guides to spanish.
