Hello. I passed both tests for the above course and the credits were automatically updated into my continuing education log on the USGBC website. However, they show up greyed out meaning "they are subject to review''. Why is this the case since I passed both exams? Also, how can I fix this problem? Do they still count towards my CE credits??

Hi Alex,

In order to access your certificate of completion, pass the quizzes on these two pages: Key Concepts and Strategies and Measuring for Success. Once you have passed each quiz, you'll have access to PDF certificates of completion on those pages. My apologies, but certificates completed through Peach New Media are no longer available for download.

Thanks for the update on LEED V4. I enjoyed watching the video. I am planning to take the exam for LEED BD+C after 30th June. When would be the V4 study guide available?

Digital Marketing Manager, U.S. Green Building Council

Hi Sunanda, we expect to release study materials in fall 2014. In the meantime, please review this article for other study tips.

Environmental & Sustainability Consultant, MAHY Khoory Creative Solutions

Thanks Nora for the information. Are there any other study materials that can be used for the exam preparation as USGBC will release the study materials towards end of this year? I want to take the LEED AP B+C in Sept/ Oct this year. Can I use materials prepared by other organizations other than USGBC? Thanks. Sunanda

Digital Marketing Manager, U.S. Green Building Council

Hi Sunanda, I would encourage you to search online for study resources from other organizations. Good luck!

Hi - I took the LEED BD+C Exam on Sunday for V9 and got a 168 so failed. Now what? It LEED V4 a complete rewrite? Is it worth using my older study guides for LEED V9? Also, am I a member of USGBC? I always thought I was.
Thanks

Digital Marketing Manager, U.S. Green Building Council

Hi Joseph, If you did not pass the LEED 2009 BD+C exam, you can retest after June 30, 2014, and the exam will feature LEED v4 content. Learn more. Also, there are two types of USGBC members; national members are organizations, and chapter members are individuals. Learn more.
