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

The LEED Green Associate credential is your gateway to green, demonstrating a robust, up-to-date understanding of current green building principles and best practices. We’ve created this credential for everyone; you don’t need previous LEED project experience to be eligible.

Prep yourself on LEED v4 content by checking out our candidate handbooks and other online study materials.

The exam is computer-based, meaning it can be taken almost anywhere in the world. Everything happens on screen, and 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!

Next, you’ll need to earn 15 continuing education hours every two years to maintain your credential. You can do this through LEED project experience, education courses, authorship, or volunteering.
