The LEED Accreditation Study Group Program designed to prepare participants for the rigors of the LEED Green Associate accreditation exam.

LEED accreditation distinguishes building professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully steward the LEED certification process. LEED Green Associates have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles and the LEED Rating System.

The LEED Green Associate credential demonstrates a solid and current foundation in green building principles and practices. From marketers to lawyers, landscape architects to education professionals, and product manufacturers to policymakers, LEED Green Associates enjoy a broad understanding of sustainability that bolsters their careers and enhances their lives.

LEED Green Associates earn their credential by passing a two-hour, computer-based exam comprising 100 randomly delivered multiple-choice questions.

The LEED Green Associate credential denotes basic knowledge of green design, construction and operations. Professions that may be interested in the LEED Green Associate include real estate, law, planning, manufacturing, marketing, leasing, sales, education and those new to green building.
