Benefits of a LEED AP Credential

The LEED AP Building Design + Construction designation is great for professionals who are responsible for planning and building new construction structures to sustainable goals.

Qualify for LEED Projects

For projects seeking LEED Certification, there's no better person to have on the team than a LEED AP with a specialty in new construction! LEED project teams earn an extra point toward certification simply by having a LEED AP BD+C professional working on the project. The LEED AP credential will definitely get your resume pushed to the top of the pile!

Highlight Your Technical Expertise

By earning the LEED AP BD+C credential, you get to maintain control and authority over the project timeline and progress. There's no need for your organization to hire an outside consultant when they've got in-house talent. Since your company will be relying on your technical expertise, they will likely pay for your training/exams and/or give you a promotion and bonus.

Spearhead LEED Projects

Take your career to the next level by becoming a leader on LEED projects. As a LEED AP, you'll be one of the top decision-makers offering guidance, setting project goals, prioritizing building strategies, delegating responsibilities, and ensuring that the projects gets LEED certified in time and under budget.

Quick Answers to Your LEED AP Questions

Do I have to be a LEED Green Associate before I can be a LEED AP BD+C?

Yes. You'll have the choice of either taking the LEED Green Associate exam on its own or taking what the USGBC calls a "combined" or "full" exam, which would allow you to take the LEED Green Associate and the LEED AP BD+C exams during the same 4-hour testing window.

Who is this class intended for?

This course is ideal for architects, engineers, construction managers, general contractors, plumbing contractors, and anyone regularly involved in the LEED construction process.

Does this class count for LEED CMP credit?

No, the USGBC will not accept LEED Exam Prep training for LEED CMP credit. If you are looking for LEED continuing education, please view our LEED CMP training packages.

Do I have to have LEED project experience to qualify for this credential?

No, LEED project experience is not a requirement to take this training or the exam. However, work experience on a LEED project will certainly be helpful for reinforcing course concepts.
