Quick Answers to Your LEED GA Questions

Do I have to be a LEED Green Associate before I can become a LEED AP?

Yes. You are required to take and pass the LEED Green Associate exam before you can fully pursue becoming a LEED AP. 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 exams during the same 4-hour testing window.

Who is this class intended for?

Anyone interested in sustainability and green building. Seriously, LEED offers the best overview of sustainability available. The LEED credit system makes each concept simple and understandable.

While many of our customers are architects, engineers, construction managers, facility managers, interior designers, product manufacturers, real estate attorneys, we also have high school students, career changers, retirees, elected officials, business owners, and more.

Literally, anyone can take this course.

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 package.

How long does it take to get LEED certified (accredited)?

We’ve seen someone do it in as little as 10 days (very aggressive), though most people follow our recommendation of 30 days.

The time it takes depends on your work/life schedule, time commitment, learning style, and familiarity with the subject matter. We recommend planning 4-6 weeks from start to finish - just get it done!

Why should I take an Everblue course?

We guarantee your success. We specialize in making mission-driven learning fun, engaging, and inspiring. Our goal isn’t just for you to pass your exam but to have you become a raving fan of Everblue and to have you go forth implementing LEED green building principles in the real world.
