LEED Certification

Ecotech Training's LEED Green Associate course prepares participants to earn the nationally recognized LEED Green Associate Accreditation.


What is the Difference Between LEED Certification and LEED Accreditation?

Buildings earn LEED Certification. Individuals who pass one of the LEED credentialing exams become LEED Accredited.

Why Get Your LEED Accreditation?

There are several career paths to which LEED knowledge can be applied. Typically, if you are already in the construction industry (such as an architect, contractor, or interior designer), you can use LEED to enhance your knowledge of sustainable methods and technologies, and offer your customers more services. For those new to the industry, becoming a LEED Green Associate will allow you to work on projects seeking LEED Certification, which is a prerequisite to the more advanced, specialty LEED Accreditations.

When and Where to I Take the Exam?

LEED exams are scheduled by appointment at Prometric Testing Centers and are computer-based tests. That means you can schedule an exam at a local testing center (there are over 400 nationwide and at least one in every major city) at a time that is convenient for you. Testing centers are typically open six days a week. Since all LEED exams are computer-based, you will find out the results of your exam instantly.
