Looking to take that next step in your career? Get your LEED AP BD+C credential! USGBC National Capital Region is offering a two-day exam prep course for the LEED AP BD+C exam on February 7 and 8. Join or renew your USGBC-NCR membership at the same time and save even more!

The LEED AP BD+C credential suits professionals with expertise in the design and construction phases of green buildings, serving the commercial, residential, education and healthcare sectors.

This two-day course will break down the complex LEED system into plain language. We’ll explore real world projects to help you better understand and remember the material and put concepts into practice. Attendees will also develop strategies for studying and test-taking specific to this exam.

Please note that having your LEED Green Associate is a prerequisite for earning your LEED AP BD+C credential. You may take the LEED Green Associate exam first or at the same time that you take your LEED AP BD+C exam. Our LEED AP BD+C exam prep course assumes that you have already earned your LEED Green Associate or that you are also registered for our LEED Green Associate.

The course will take place from 8:30am-5:00 pm with a one-hour break for lunch. Meals are not provided.
