The required first step for anyone interested in LEED is to pursue the LEED Green Associate accreditation.

What is a LEED Green Associate?  LEED Green Associate is an internationally recognized, professional credential for an individual who has demonstrated his or her understanding of core sustainability strategies as outlined by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards.

To become a LEED Green Associate, you will follow these steps:

I have been selling in the commercial HVAC industry for 23 years. I will be 50 in 2011. Is it to late for me to get my LEED certification? My memory is not what it used to be. Thanks.

It's certainly not too late to get a LEED certification. Everblue has students of all ages and coming from many different backgrounds. The LEED Green Associate exam prep covers a lot of material, but our course gives you everything you need to do well on the exam. In fact, Everblue has over a 98% pass rate with our students who take the LEED Green Associate exam prep class.

Call our office at 1-800-460-2575 if you would like to discuss the course further with us.

How many study hours

Submitted by Anonymous

I am going to take the LEED-GA training course and take the test...eventually. My question is, how many study hours outside of the class do you recommend to have a good chance at passing the test?

How many study hours

Submitted by Everblue

Everblue recommends that students spend 20-30 hours studying on their own. While we thoroughly cover all the material in class, self study helps students to really retain the information.

Is it right for me?

Hi

I am a recent college grad, looking to become involved in the green economy. Is the LEED Associates exam right for me, or should I gain work experience first? How will the LEED Associates certification help me get a job?

Thank you

Is it right for me?

Submitted by Everblue

Thank you for the great question! A LEED Green Associate credential would be a smart first step to a green career. You do not need work experience to become a LEED Green Associate, so it is perfect for a student right out of school.

A LEED Green Associate will certainly help you in the job market, because it will give you knowledge and a credential in a fast growing field. Also, it is a good way to balance the fact that your work experience is limited. And as a LEED Green Associate, you will be an attractive candidate to anyone already working in the green industry.

Thank you

What to prepare before attending the Course?

Submitted by Anonymous

Hi, I am an interior designer and am interested in taking the Green Associate Exam Prep Course. I understand that there will be some handouts and study materials provided in the course but will you suggest to also buy the LEED reference guide in advance? If so, should it be the 2009 version or the V2? I am a bit confused on the differences between the two? As an interior designer, do I need to purchase the full set of reference guide to prepare for the exam and for future practice?

Thanks.

A MUST for passing the Green Associate Course

Submitted by Anonymous

I took the Green Associate course a while ago (have procrastinated a bit about taking the exam), and also purchased the flash cards and the practice exams (on-line).

In particular, the practice exams are outstanding and completely invaluable towards passing the exam. I am not sure if I could have passed without them (I don't think the flashcards alone would do it), and the format of the practice exams on-line was perfect for passing the exam.

I passed with a very high score (I think, 195?) and thought the exam was relatively easy after having done the practice exams. A great format, and invaluable to passing the exam.

Thanks for all your help!

The best way to start with earning your LEED Green Associate is to take an Everblue LEED Green Associate exam prep course. After the class, we recommend you study for several weeks with the materials we provide you. Then you schedule your LEED Green Associate exam and pass!

To continue on and earn your LEED AP, we also recommend that you take an Everblue LEED AP exam prep course. Everblue offers a LEED AP Building Design and Construction course and a LEED AP Operations and Maintenance course. After the course, you study for several weeks like you would for the LEED GA. Then register for the LEED AP exam and pass!

Thanks for the great questions!

LEED GA Exam prep

Submitted by Anonymous

I took the two day course prior to taking the exam. The materials that they provided with the course (course book with all the classroom slides, summary sheet for each LEED credit, 400 questions plus two practice tests) gave plenty of study material to prepare for the test. The real benefit of the two day class was learning how to really read the question and understand what was was being asked. It was this that helped me do so well on the exam and I would recommend it to anyone.

A Great Class!

Submitted by lyanisselly

Hello,

I recently took the live class for the LEED GA exam prep with James Boley, in Chicago. James made the class clear, smart, interesting, focused and friendly. He gave us all kind of helpful information to pass the test.

After a few days of studying, I took the test today and passed with 183/200, in the first try.

Thank you very much Everblue!

Are the test questions similar to those on the actual test and is it a good indication that if you are doing well on the practice tests you will do well on the actual test?

LEED Green Associate Practice Exams

Submitted by Everblue

Hello,

Our LEED Practice Exams simulate the actual exam experience. Our questions are the same format, structure, and question methodology. We also cover the same material that is covered by the LEED exams. If you are doing very well on the practice exams, then you should do well on the regular exam.

Legacy LEED APs

Submitted by Everblue

Tal,

Hello. A legacy LEED AP is someone who became accredited prior to the LEED version 3 standards which were implemented in the summer of 2009.

Under the current LEED version three standards, your first step would be a LEED Green Associate training course and then the LEED Green Associate exam. Once you have passed the LEED Green Associate, you can proceed to the LEED AP with Specialty level.

Demand for LEED by region

Submitted by Anonymous

Hello,

Where do you see the greatest demand for LEED related jobs in the USA?

LEED Job Outlook

Submitted by Everblue

Demand for LEED training which is what we can measure is strong in all of the major coastal cities and in areas with large federal footprints such as military bases or Department of Energy Installations.

Interestingly enough though, my experience is that people seem to have an easier time get LEED project work in less competitive areas where schools, hospitals, or municipalities are building LEED projects.

LEED International

Submitted by Anonymous

Hi!
The LEED accreditation seems like a must do for anyone wanting to gain a foothaold in the hugely upcoming green market. Is it possible for a citizen of a non American, or a country where the Green building council is not registered to become a LEED professional??

International LEED Accreditation

Submitted by Everblue

LEED is an international standard. It is possible for anyone, anywhere in the world to become LEED accredited. The only hurdle for most people is the limited number of languages that the exam is offered in. We have had LEED students from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, Italy, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Japan, and many more countries.

Great Content

Submitted by Miguel_Orejuela

I completed the webinar for Leed Green Associate back in March, 2010. The overall content of the course was very good and right on target respect to the methodology of the test. After working for few days on the study pack and also the question pack for the LEED AP BD&C content I was able to Pass the 2 parts of the exam today.

I felt very confortable and familiar with the test. That help a lot.

I will certainly be back to this site for my Continued Education Hours.

Thanks

Aced the LEED Exam

Submitted by cconditt

I was at your Seattle training session for Green Associate on 1/7-1/8/10. I wanted to let you know that today I passed both the LEED Green associate and AP BD+C. I took both tests back to back, completing GA in 20 minutes and AP BD+C in 1hr 8 m. You may remember that I am prior service US Army, Infantry, E6. I went at the LEED program in 11B style and with some serious studying, and your help, I passed my tests on the first try. Thanks a million!
 
The training Everblue provided was detailed, accurate, and enabled me to pass the GA test on the first attempt. You did an excellent job conducting the class and gave me exactly what I needed to be successful. I would use Everblue again without hesitation and will recommend your course to my friends and colleagues.

This class was well attended (30 participants) and I hope we all have sponges for brains because Greg Hamra is very knowledgeable and passing would be easy if we had his knowledge. Since we do not, I can at least attest to the fact that he made learning fun and taking the exam will not be as difficult as I thought prior to taking the course.

LEED Associate Class

Submitted by Lori Mitchell (not verified)

I just attended the class in Denver, December 7-8 at the University of Denver. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that the instructor Joan, has a true gift. She is passionate about the subject matter and knows it intimately. Teaching is a talent, one that is difficult at best, AND teaching adults who are working managers and have some knowledge of the subject matter - AND keeping those adults on task, moving forward is nothing short of miraculous. I've done some adult teaching in my life, and it's much harder than teaching children. I found Joan to be pleasant, professional and an incredible instructor, and it's very apparent that she loves what she is doing and selling. I wanted you to hear that and hope this makes it's way to a person who has the ability to see that she is compensated for this amazing work. I went into this class with a "let's get through this" attitude, but am now renewed with a more concerned about my environment attitude. I hope that if I get another opportunity to take any additional classes with your organization, I am lucky enough to have her teaching it. Best regards, Lori Mitchell
