About LEED

The LEED rating system for green building is the most widely recognized and used rating system in the world.  LEED certification means the local and global communities can rest assured that these buildings have fewer negative impacts on the environment because they encourage resourcefulness and energy awareness and savings.  LEED also represents global leaders for positive ecological change; according to the USGBC, “88 of the Fortune 100 companies are already using LEED.”


LEED Certification Overview

The LEED certification process allows a building to earn points from nine basic areas.  Our courses will familiarize you with these areas so you can fully understand the certification process. The nine key aspects include: Integrative Process, Location and Transportation, Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, Innovation, Regional Priority and based on these categories, a project can earn one of four LEED rating levels: LEED Certified, LEED Silver, LEED Gold, or LEED Platinum.


Using Your LEED Green Associate Credential

As soon as you have passed the exam, you can use the title “LEED Green Associate” or “LEED Green Assoc”. All instances should be noted as “LEED® Green Associate™” or “LEED® Green Assoc.” (“LEED GA” is not an approved abbreviation for the LEED Green Associate credential, and should not be used.)


Certificates

Once your exam results have been processed, you can request your certificate. Certificates are available in two forms: PDF softcopy and a hardcopy.


Credential Maintenance

LEED Green Associates must complete 15 continuing education (CE) hours within two years of earning their credential.


Earning LEED AP after LEED® Green Associate™

If you are a LEED Green Associate when you earn the LEED AP credential, your LEED Green Associate credential expires and is replaced by LEED AP.

LEED Green Associate Exam

The LEED Green Associate exam consists of 200 questions; it is a timed examination that must be completed in 2 hours (120minutes) or less in addition to a 10 minute intro tutorial. Exams have both scored and unscored sections.  All questions are delivered randomly throughout the exam and each question should be answered completely.  Unscored questions will be used for future testing purposes. Exams are computer-based and questions are displayed and questions and answers are displayed on a screen.  You do have the option to skip questions, flag questions for later, and change answers. Please be aware that if a candidate exits the exam for any reason, they must retake the exam and cannot continue the current exam. The exam format is broken down into the following segments:

  • LEED Process (16 Questions)
  • Integrative Strategies (8 Questions)
  • Location and Transportation (7 Questions)
  • Sustainable Sites (7 Questions)
  • Water Efficiency (9 Questions)
  • Energy and Atmosphere (10 Questions)
  • Materials and Resources (9 Questions)
  • Indoor Environmental Quality (8 Questions)
  • Project Surroundings and Public Outreach (11 Questions)

*The exam contains 15 pretest questions.


Exam Scoring & Results

All LEED® Professional exams are scored between 125 and 200. A score of 170 or higher is required to pass. Your exam score will be displayed on screen at the end of the exam and you will receive a printed report of your results at the test center.  Within 72 hours of your appointment, your exam results will be processed, your account will be updated, and, if applicable, your badge will be updated in the usgbc.org People directory.

I have taken the RESNET Level I and II Home Energy Survey Professional and the BPI Building Analyst I Training with Dallas Jones of Green Training USA. My training experience was exceptional. Dallas brings both his knowledge of home energy and his field experience into the classroom and presents it in an organized, easy to follow manner. The field demonstrations of the diagnostic equipment and techniques presented by Dallas provided me with a wealth of knowledge. I would highly recommend Dallas Jones and Green Training USA to anyone who is considering training in the home energy field.

Great Class! Great Instructor! Top Notch! I’ve gone through a lot of classes in my 20 plus years; yours is among the best.

I thought the training was thorough and well taught. I do not believe I could have passed the exam without such a good course. I would recommend this course for anyone starting out in the Energy Audit field.

Green Training USA provided me with the basic knowledge and hands-on skills to start doing home energy audits immediately. The instructor was focused on the required training content and was also very responsive to questions from the participants. He was able to answer both practical and technical questions and blend them into the general discussion. The test preparation materials were very good and I had no problem passing the RESNET Level II Exam. Overall I am very happy with the course and the results.

I would like to salute Green Training USA on the excellent quality of your BPI training course. The instructor, Dallas Jones, was very knowledgeable on the subject matter and presented the material in an efficient and interesting manner. The course materials were professionally prepared and very helpful. I look forward to working with Green Training USA in the future and I will attend future training programs.

Since Todd’s staff took Green Training USA's training and become BPI and RESNET certified, we have experienced an increase in pride in ourselves and our customers. Our BPI and RESNET certified technicians carry and share their expertise proudly. Our customers trust that expertise and easily welcome our “experts” into their homes. We have had local news recognize us as the experts, also. It is extremely rewarding as our customers call us after completing the work in their homes to thank us for finally being comfortable. The word is spreading fast that we are the experts in comfort. On top of all of this we are experiencing a growing customer base and revenue. Becoming BPI and RESNET certified and partnering with Home Energy Team was, by far, the best business decision we could have made. Now we are not just a “heating & cooling company,” but we are becoming known as the “Experts in Home Comfort".

By taking the BPI Building Analyst and BPI Envelope Combined Course through Green Training USA, I was able to save money on the course and exam fees. And, since I completed their self-paced online study prior to taking their hands-on site training, I was only away from my business for a few days. Now I’m going to get both certifications sooner and be eligible for more government/utility programs a lot earlier than if I had taken the classes separately. Many thanks to the team at Green Training USA.

I really liked the course and will definitely consider more training from your company. I liked Dallas's presentational style, and he changed his shirt for each segment! Makes him look like a real person. I've seen some pretty deadly (boring) energy videos through the years but this training kept me engaged and I learned a lot!
