Everblue LEED Training Review: I Passed My LEED Exam!

Dear Chris, I’m feeling very satisfied as I provide this Everblue LEED training review. I am writing to inform you that I passed my LEED AP examination with a score of 194! About two-thirds of the way through the examination, I was aware I was going to pass; however, I was shocked at how high my score was.

I attribute my success to the Everblue course and instruction. I had previously taken a course from another education provider, however, that experience left me still lacking critical LEED knowledge and understanding. Secondly, I took an online course, which ended up being a very dry “reading” of the LEED credits. So after two courses, I was simply without a basic knowledge of the LEED credits and the strategies behind those credits.

I signed up for a two-day Everblue course in April 2009. I found the accommodations and course outline to be extremely powerful and professional. More importantly, I found the TEACHING to be profound, taking me beyond the course intent and into the mind of USGBC.

After the course, I made detailed notes and other visuals to help me understand further the credit and strategies of LEED. I took advantage of the Everblue practice questions, studying each one to understand the knowledge required to understand the particular credit. I also used the practice exam in the week prior to my examination to determine my readiness for the exam. And lastly, YOUR support to me via email was extremely valuable in areas where I was over-thinking the LEED process.

I went into the examination center fully prepared for the challenge ahead. I remained as calm as my mind would allow and proceeded with the exam. I used the entire 2 hour time allotment to answer, make and review my answers. When I finally pressed the SUBMIT button I was prepared for a passing mark, however, my score was beyond what I could have possibly imagined.

I accredit my high score and understanding to the Everblue LEED course, and I recommend Everblue to my friends and colleagues, almost daily. I cannot begin to thank you enough for your support and assistance to me during my preparation. I hope this Everblue LEED training review helps others find the motivation and confidence to pursue this goal.

As you stated at the beginning of the course “If the student will do his/her part in studying, this Everblue course will do its part to help you pass the LEED AP exam.” Truer words have never been spoken.

Here’s looking forward to future training with Everblue.
