Can I take the LEED AP Homes v4 exam on a different country ? I'm moving to Colombia for a while .

You can absolutely register to take the LEED AP Homes exam in Colombia. I followed these steps to locate a test center: 1) Please visit www.prometric.com/ and enter "GBCI" in the Test Sponsor field. 2) Then, confirm "Green Business Certification Inc.", and click "Locate Test Center". 3) Choose the country that you are looking for from dropdown menu, and click "Next". 4) Then, choose "LEED Green Associate" from the drop down menu, and click "Next". 5) Enter the city where you want to test, and click "search". When you see the testing center that looks most convenient for you, click "Availability" next to the test center's location. This takes you to a clickable calendar showing the available times for each open day. There are 2 test centers in Colombia. The first is 8331: BOGOTA, COLOMBIA, Gimnasio Britanico, Sede Campestre CHIA. The second location is 8360: CALI, COLOMBIA, Universidad de San Buenaventura, Edificio "El Lago" Oficina 208, CALI. The second option does not have as much availability as the first. I hope that helps and best of luck on your exam.

Hi James, Thank you for your question. This is the latest version (v4) reference guide for LEED AP for Homes. You may also find it helpful to look at the reference section of the LEED AP for Homes Candidate Handbook: http://www.usgbc.org/resources/grid/credentialing and the Introduction to LEED v4 http://www.usgbc.org/node/2772813.
