There are various areas, or specialties, to which LEED Green Associates can aspire after gaining relevant project experience. The most popular, LEED AP Building Design + Construction, is also the most similar to the material covered in the Green Associate course. Students will prepare to understand more intricate details in key green building areas including Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation in Design. As an advanced accreditation, GBCI recommends that candidates have relevant project experience in order to prepare for the more intensive subject matter detailed in this course. Overall, LEED AP BD+C focuses on the design, rather than the performance of a building, requiring an understanding of the energy optimization opportunities present in constructing new buildings.
With the release of LEED Version 4, the USGBC no longer requires a LEED Project Letter of Attestation to be eligible for LEED AP BD+C. However, the LEED AP Exam will include project experience concepts.
Prerequisites: LEED Green Associate training. LEED project experience is also recommended.
