LEED Professional Credential exams to feature LEED v4 material

Published on 27 Sep 2013 Written by Erin Emery Hartz Posted in LEED

Updated February 6, 2014

The LEED Professional Credential exams for the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP with specialty designations will feature LEED v4 material beginning on June 30, 2014.

  • The credential designation will remain the same and current credentialed professionals will not need to retest.
  • Exam candidates wishing to test with the current exams should do so before June 15, 2014.
  • Candidates wishing to test on LEED v4 materials should do so after June 30, 2014.

Additionally, LEED project experience competency will be assessed within the exam. Practitioner experience is critical to the LEED AP designation. As such, proficiency will tested objectively within the LEED AP exam itself and the requirement to submit proof of LEED project experience at the time of application is no longer required. GBCI strongly urges candidates to gain meaningful project experience prior to taking the exam.

For any questions, feel free to contact customer service.

You must have submitted all GA CEUs in order to be eligible for AP exam. Watch your profile in USGBC website frequently. Go to Credential and see if your status is green. If not contact with them and they ask you for some amount (probably $50). After that , they renew your credentials. I hope this helps.
I am planning to take the LEED GA exam after June however I would like to purchase the V4 materials now so that I can prepare my self in advance. Could you please advise when is the V4 materials will be available in the market?
