Watch our video below to learn more about how you can become a LEED AP.

LEED AP with specialty credentials take your green building expertise to the next level. They equip you with an in-depth understanding of green building design, construction, and operation, while also assessing your knowledge of a particular LEED rating system and the certification process.

Given the advanced nature of these credentials, previous experience working on a LEED-registered project is strongly recommended.

We’ve made a variety of study materials available to you online, and our candidate handbooks will tell your more about what you need to know.

The exam is computer-based, meaning it can be taken almost anywhere in the world. You’ll be able to easily change your answers, skip questions, or flag them for later review. Score 170 points or higher, and congratulations, you’ve passed!

You’ll need to earn 30 continuing education hours every two years to maintain your credential, either through LEED project experience, education courses, authorship, or volunteering.
