LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized certification system for green building, developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2008. LEED certification is the most well known and comprehensive green standard available in the United States.
LEED certification and training are becoming increasingly useful skills as more builders take advantage of green technologies and design tools. If you are interested in becoming an accredited LEED professional or consultant, you should consider applying for LEED certification.
Applicants must qualify to take the LEED exam and must pass the exam in order to become credentialed.
There are two main LEED certification exams; the one you take depends on which type of LEED professional you want to become. The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has recently approved a third exam, which is still in development. All LEED exams are multiple-choice and administered by computer.
LEED certification is awarded by tiers, or levels, of expertise. This means that over time, professionals can gain titles that reflect greater expertise and knowledge. Based on your career goals and experience, you can take the LEED Green Associate Exam (Tier 1), the LEED Accredited Professional Exam (Tier 2), or the LEED Fellow Exam (Tier 3).
