LEED certification involves four main steps:
  1. Register your project by completing key forms and submitting payment.
  2. Apply for LEED certification by submitting your completed certification application through LEED Online and paying a certification review fee.
  3. Review. Your LEED application is reviewed by GBCI.
  4. Certify. Receive the certification decision. If you’ve earned LEED certification: congratulations!
