What is LEED®?
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
What is LEED Professional Accreditation?
LEED Professional Accreditation distinguishes building professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully steward the LEED certification process. LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles and the LEED Rating System. More than 40,000 people have become LEED APs since USGBC launched the Professional Accreditation program in 2001.
The LEED AP credential represents the individual’s knowledge of the LEED Rating System and its application in practice. LEED APs facilitate the integrated design process and streamline LEED certification.
