What is LEED

Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is a world wide recognized green building certification system, providing verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in various areas such as water efficiency, energy savings, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is intended to provide building owners and operators a specific guideline for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

    My company is in Massachusetts and builds custom furniture from reclaimed antique wood from early New England homesteads and factories. What do we need to do to be LEED Certified?

      Hi Christine,

      You will need to become familiar with LEED green building standards and principles. The easiest and most effective way to do this is to take a LEED Green Associate exam prep course. Call us at 1-800-460-2575 and we will talk you through the process.

    Could an existing building apply for a LEED cert or does it need to be done before building completion?

      Hi Bibiana, an existing building can apply for a LEED Certification under the Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance rating system. There is even a designation for architects who work on these types of projects. It is called LEED AP Operations and Maintenance (O+M). First you would need to become a LEED Green Associate. That is the mandatory starting point for individuals wanting to get involved in LEED. The LEED Green Associate designation denotes basic understanding of green building design, construction, and operations. From there, you could advance to become a LEED AP O+M. For more information, please call us at 800-460-2575.

      Hi July, you have the ability to set the date and time for your LEED exam as you’d like. The LEED exam is offered through a Prometric Testing Center. Prometric is located in all major cities, so you probably have a test center nearby. It is important to note that the LEED exam will not be offered from June 15-30, 2014 because the USGBC will be launching a new version. The tests will resume July 1. For more questions, please feel free to reach out to us at 800-460-2575.

    how to become green Leed associates

    • 12. leedexperts  |  April 28, 2015 at 3:30 pm

      Hi Rizwan, in order to become a LEED Green Associate, you will want to enroll in a LEED exam prep course (either live or online). Then you will want to study for 20-30 hours to make sure you truly understand the material. Then you pay the exam fee directly to the U.S. Green Building Council and schedule the date/time of your exam appointment with your local Prometric testing center. You will need to pass the exam with a score of 170/200. To get started with the LEED exam prep course, give us a call at 800-460-2575. Our students have a 100% pass rate on the LEED Green Associate v4 exam!

    Hi, I just want to ask how to be a LEED accredited company in the Philippines? What are the requirements and instructions on how to be accredited? Thank you very much.

    • 14. leedexperts  |  July 6, 2015 at 3:26 pm

      Hi AJ, thanks for your question. Companies do not get “LEED Accredited.” They can, however, become official USGBC Members. Your organization can learn more about this process here: http://www.usgbc.org/member. If you, as an individual, would like to become “LEED Accredited” and earn your LEED Green Associate accreditation, we offer online exam prep training to help you with this goal. Please visit http://www.everbluetraining.com/leed-green-associate-on-demand-webinars to get started.
