LEED :: You Can Still Sit For the Exam

Missed the last LEED AP exam in June? Thought you'd have to wait to sit until you'd been working on LEED projects in the field for a few years? You may not be eligible for the LEED AP exam, but you can take the LEED Green Associate exam right now.

As of spring 2009, the LEED AP credentialing program includes three levels of credentials:
* LEED Green Associate
* LEED AP with Specialty
* LEED AP Fellow

The LEED Green Associate is a pre-requisite for the LEED AP credential, and can be pursued by anyone who is employed in a field related to green building. There are no educational prerequisites for taking the LEED Green Associate exam, but you must either have professional experience related to green building or be a student enrolled in coursework related to sustainable design, in which case you may take the exam without professional work experience.

Be sure to check for student discounts.
