WHAT IS LEED

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a rating system for “green” buildings. Supported by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED Certification recognizes a subset of buildings that were designed, built, and/or maintained with sustainability in mind.

The LEED Rating Systems categorize buildings by type and provide an outline for implementing the most sustainable solutions for that building type. When pursuing LEED Certification for a building, a project team must select the most appropriate rating system and work toward satisfying the requirements that are outlined.

Follow the LEED Three-Tiered Process

LEED Accreditation is one’s demonstration of green building knowledge and proficiency. A professional becomes LEED Accredited after passing a 100-question certification exam. There are several LEED designations available, but all professionals must follow this three-tier process:

The most popular LEED AP specialty among accredited professionals is the LEED AP Building Design and Construction (LEED AP BD+C). This specialty has many similarities to LEED Green Associate but takes a closer look at concepts related to new construction and major renovations. LEED AP BD+C is directly applicable to professionals who work on constructing new buildings. This specialty highlights opportunities during the design phase that can result in greater energy savings later.

The next most common LEED AP specialty is the LEED AP Operations and Maintenance (LEED AP O+M) designation. This specialty focuses on the performance of green buildings and is perfect for facility managers and sustainability officers responsible for measuring and tracking a building’s energy consumption. LEED AP O+M highlights the importance of sustainability reporting in regard to a LEED project’s performance period. Professionals with this designation are accountable for ensuring that a building’s operations are as efficient as were designed.

LEED Credential Maintenance

All LEED professionals are required to participate in ongoing professional development training. Known as the LEED Credential Maintenance Program (LEED CMP), this requirement stipulates that all LEED Green Associates and LEED APs with Specialty acquire a set number of continuing education hours every two years to maintain their credential. LEED Green Associates must get 15 hours, and LEED APs with Specialty must get 30 hours. Professionals can earn these hours from a number of different activities – the most convenient solution for satisfying this requirement is to purchase a comprehensive LEED CMP package.
