LEED credential relevance

The Green Building Certification Institute, Washington, D.C., has launched a credentialing maintenance program for LEED Accredited Professionals and Green Associates, ensuring that LEED professional credentials will remain relevant and meaningful in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

“Since 2001, the LEED AP credential has been recognized as a mark of significant achievement, acknowledging that a candidate passed a rigorous test that assessed their knowledge of green building fundamentals, as well as knowledge of practice in a chosen specialty,” said Peter Templeton, president, GBCI. “But knowledge doesn’t stand still, and credential maintenance underscores a professional’s commitment to staying at the leading edge of green building science and practice.”

A number of activities qualify to earn LEED credential holders credit toward their credentialing maintenance. Those activities include continuing education, as well as the practical application of LEED on projects and active participation in the green building community. A CMP Guide is available at http://www.gbci.org that outlines CMP-eligible activities and the requirements for maintaining both the LEED AP and LEED Green Associate credentials.

Later this year, GBCI will launch an online tool for registered CMP users to easily and seamlessly submit and track maintenance activities.
