Quick Answers to Your LEED AP Questions

Do I have to be a LEED Green Associate before I can be a LEED AP O+M?

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 O+M exams during the same 4-hour testing window.

Who is this class intended for?

This class is intended for building engineers, facility managers, sustainability consultants, commercial cleaners, pest control contractors, and anyone regularly involved in the LEED operations/maintenance 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.
