LEED Professional Credential exams to feature LEED v4 material

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

Updated May 15: Exams for the LEED Green Associate, BD+C, ID+C and O+M will feature v4 content in June. Exams for Homes and ND will feature v4 content in 2015.

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.
