If I pass the first part (the LEED Green Associate exam) but not the second (the specialty exam), can I call myself a LEED Green Associate?


No. If you pass only the first part of the LEED AP exam, you are not a LEED Green Associate. This is because you applied to be a LEED AP. With that application, you have three attempts to pass the both parts of the LEED AP exam.

If you would like to become a LEED Green Associate, you must contact customer service with the request. Please note that you will be subject to the $50 Green Associate application fee and will have to agree to the LEED Green Associate Terms and Conditions and CMP requirements.
