LEED Version 4 Launch Date & Last Day to Test for LEED v3

Update: LEED v4 Exam Prep is the most up-to-date content.

LEED Version 4 Launch Date & Last Day to Test for LEED v3

LEED Version 4 launched in June 2014 and is the most current version of the LEED credentialing exams as of the updated date on this post.

The last day to take the credential exams with LEED v2009 (also known as version 3) content was June 15, 2014. The first day to take the exams with the new LEED v4 content was June 30, 2014. 

Everblue launched the first iteration of its LEED Version 4 exam prep training on May 19, 2014. Students who enrolled in this training prepared to take the LEED v4 exam. 

Since 2014, there have been many rumblings about LEED v4.1. The U.S. Green Building Council website has said on many occasions that “LEED v4.1 is here!” As of this writing, let it be known that LEED v4.1 is here only in the sense that LEED project teams can use LEED v4.1 pilot credits on their building projects. LEED v4.1 is NOT here in terms of a major overhaul on the LEED professional credential exams. 

As a USGBC Education Partner, Everblue is given exclusive access to content changes relevant to the LEED credential exams. We update our LEED exam prep curriculum accordingly. But officially, the LEED professional exam content as of this update date covers LEED v4 content. LEED v4.1 exam prep does not exist because the LEED professional exams are not officially LEED v4.1 exams. For more information, see this post about LEED v4.1.
