What are continuing education or credential maintenance hours?
Continuing education or “CE” hours are the hours LEED professionals spend in credential maintenance activities. CE hours are calculated differently depending on the activity.
If you are a LEED AP, you must earn 30 CE hours (six must be LEED-specific) every two years to maintain your credential.
If you are a LEED Green Associate, you must earn 15 CE hours (three must be LEED-specific) every two years to maintain your credential.
