LEED CMP Explained

The Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) requires LEED professionals to complete ongoing continuing education.

LEED Credential Maintenance Program logoThe goal of the LEED Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) is to broaden the perspective of LEED professionals, keeping their knowledge current and their LEED accreditation relevant. LEED professionals at all levels are accredited for two-year periods. During that time, a LEED Green Associate or LEED AP must accumulate a set number of continuing education hours and report them to GBCI while doing so. The fee for renewing the title every two years is $50.00.

If a LEED professional fails to complete the required hours, their LEED credential will expire at the end of the two-year period. In order to regain their credential, individuals must then retest to regain their credential.

LEED Green Associates

LEED Green Associates are only required to earn 15 continuing education hours in a two-year span. Three of these hours must be LEED-specific and may pertain to any of the rating systems available.

LEED Accredited Professional (AP) with Specialty

LEED APs are required to complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years. Six of these hours must be LEED-specific and related to the specialty credential the individual holds.

LEED AP without Specialty

LEED APs without Specialty are accredited professionals who passed their LEED exam prior to June 30, 2009. If a LEED AP without specialty decides to opt into the new system, he/she will need to start with earning a LEED Green Associate credential and progress through the system either with the 15 hours of CMP to maintain their LEED Green Associate or by then progressing to a LEED AP with Specialty.
