Prometric is the testing administration company that administers the LEED professional credential exams.

Prometric operates a global test center network with over 8,000 testing sites in 160 countries. That means you can take a LEED professional exam almost anywhere in the world.

This is the most important thing for you to know: Prometric handles all details of your exam administration and scheduling.

Here are the moments when you should interact with Prometric.

  • After registering for your exam on usgbc.org/account/credentials, you will be redirected to prometric.com/gbci to schedule your exam date and location.
  • When the exam appointment is scheduled, you will receive a confirmation number onscreen and an email from Prometric. 
  • If you ever need to confirm, cancel (without refund), or reschedule your appointment go to prometric.com/gbci; make sure you have your Prometric issued 16-digit confirmation number.
  • To seek an excused absence for an exam session, contact Prometric’s customer care up to 10 days past the original examination date. You may be excused, and be allowed to retest without charge.

Prometric’s website is available for scheduling, rescheduling, canceling, and confirming exam appointments 24 hours per day.

Hi, I paid the exam fee, but not register any exam appointment, due to some reason, I may not take any LEED exam recently, how can I request a refund 250$? Thanks!

Jing, since you are within your Eligibility Period and do not have a test scheduled a refund was requested for your exam. You should receive a confirmation email and refund to your account within 7 business days. Thank you.

Thank you for your interest in LEED credentials. According to LEED Green Associate Candidate Handbook (http://cn.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-green-associate-candidate-handbook), page 3, "Once you register and pay for your exam, you have one year to schedule your exam session. You may request one six month extension of this one-year period. After three unsuccessful attempts,you must wait 90 days before submitting a new registration to GBCI." I hope that helps. Best luck with your exam!

I am currently working in Europe and have located a testing center in Paris. Can I take the test (Green Associate) in English in France?
., U.S. Green Building Council
Thank you for your interest in earning the LEED Green Associate credential. Yes, you may take the LEED Green Associate in English in France. Or you may elect to take the French version of the LEED Green Associate exam, which is always delivered with questions in English alongside a French translation of the exam questions. Bonne chance!
