|A Better Credential Experience is Here
One of LEED's greatest strengths is its ability to evolve and improve along with the industry, continuously raising the bar on green building practice.
We're announcing the most significant updates to the LEED Professional Credentials since the specialty credentials and CMP were introduced in 2009.
Highlights of this update include:
Credential Maintenance improvementsEasier reporting.
You no longer have to report categories, and there are fewer limits on your CE hours. Simplified activity types.
Now there are only four activity types: education, LEED project participation, volunteering, and authorship. Volunteering has a 50% hour limit and the other activities have no limit. Better forms.
The simpler reporting forms mean you only have to fill in the basics. Automatic reporting
. Education providers will soon have the ability to automatically upload your continuing education hours when you take a course.
Exam improvementsStreamlined exam applications.
Exam application and registration steps have been cut in half, and letters of attestation are no longer needed up front. No more eligibility requirement for the LEED Green Associate.
Anyone over age 18 is eligible.
