Hi Anthony, this course is available directly on Education @USGBC. Once you pass the quiz, you will be able to access your certificate of completion. The courses and certificates are no longer available through Peach New Media.

Hi Nora, I don't see LEED ND reference guides in the store. Does ND gets updated in v4? Thanks!
Senior Digital Marketing Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Hi Xuekun, The technical side of ND was balloted and approved with the rest of v4, but we are currently making programatic updates so projects are not yet able to register. Also, the reference guide is currently under development, and we don't have a release date available yet.

Will the ND credential exams still change with the rest for June 30th if there is no reference guide?
Senior Digital Marketing Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Hi Jolie, yes the ND credential exam will change on June 30, and the reference guide will be available in early 2015.
