HDR, Inc.

Okay course

Senior Associate, Becker Morgan Group, Inc.

good course for first time user of leed online


Very thorough, but needs the most current LEED Online interface shown.

Graduate Research Assistant, University of Colorado @ Boulder

Good content for new users. Probably not needed for those with LEED's online platform.

Senior Civil Engineer, CH2M HILL

Good content. Good combination of visual and verbal presentation.


Informative course; especially for those new to the program

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

I took this course on Sep 29, 2015, and passed the quiz in second trial, with a downloaded certificate in hand. However, I didn't see the credits appear in CE hour dashboard, even though credits from the other courses I took in the following day have already shown in the dashboard. Can someone please help looking into this? Thanks!

Ledcor Construction Inc

I took this course/test back on September 10/15. The system told me I passed with 79% and allowed me to download the certificate. I'm not able to re-take the test and have not gotten credit for the hours, so am in limbo. What can I do?

Project Manager, Education Platforms, U.S. Green Building Council

Hi Emi,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Your hours have now been reported!

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Hi Melanie,
I seem to have the same problem as Emi Sakamoto. Passed the quiz at 79%, got the certificate, but unable to get credit, and can't retake the quiz. Can you please help?

Thanks a lot!

Project Manager, Education Platforms, U.S. Green Building Council

Your hours have now been reported! Thanks!

Beardsley Architects + Engineers

Hi Melanie,
I am also having the same issue as those above with credit for this course not being reported. Any help would be appreciated.

BIM Coordinator, BuroHappold

I passed with 86% after reviewing the presentation the second time and attempted quiz for 4X, At first i thought there was a technical glitch but none. Nice course and would refer it and what more of this CESs. Thank you the educators

architect, exceptions

Great summarized course. We need more of these


This course will sooth one's fear of certification processes and give you the confidence to tackle it.

Planning Engineer, Kuwait oil company

A very useful and interesting exercise for those new to Green LEED aspirants.

Mechanical,HVAC/Plumbing and Underground piping Inspection Engr., MANAZEL CONSTRUCTION COMPANY

Very informative,but CE point not added in my profile.

It is very practical and excellent guide to LEED APs work as consultants

Lend Lease

Very helpful for V3 but it would be nice to have a separate course to provide V4 navigation. Additionally, in module 5.3 not all of the images could be enlarged nor was there any indication of the total length of the course.

Project Manager / Supervisor, University of Colorado @ Boulder

I appreciate this course even if still only for v3 as we have projects ongoing in all versions of LEED.
The online format is well organized.

Ingeniera en Organización de Empresas, IRSA

It would be great this course with the new version of leed online!


Thanks a lot very helpful

Mechanical Engineer, AKF Engineers

Is the information covered in this course still relevant for LEED V4? The course description describes it as a guide to V3/2009 and I'm wondering if it is still useful.

Project Manager, Education Platforms, U.S. Green Building Council

Hi Brian,

While there is plenty of foundational knowledge that is still valuable in the course, it has not been reflected to update LEED v4.
Thanks for checking!

Does the second question have more then one answer?

Project Manager, Education Platforms, U.S. Green Building Council

Hi Brian,

Great question! To clarify the question, we have added the instructions "Select all that apply" to question two!


Director, Mahmuda Attires Ltd. (Rising Group)

Excellent and very very helpful.

Sales Executive, Kohler Co.

Informative presentation. It would be beneficial to see what quiz questions I got wrong after I pass. Since I didn't earn 100%, I would like know what information I need to restudy.

McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.

I've reviewed the presentation twice and taken the test more than 10 times, but can't get better than 47%. I might have missed one or two questions, but certainly not more than half! There must be a glitch. I wouldn't recommend taking this for CE points until the problem has been fixed.


I've passed similar and more advanced CE quizzes with no problems. I have reviewed this basic presentation several times and still can't get pass 73%.


I am sorry you are having difficulty here. I have confirmed that there is no technical error related to this course. Please try again and good luck!

Civil engineer, Santana da Silva Const. Lda.
