Credential Maintenance Basics

LEED AP BD+C continuing education is required for all credential holders. You must participate in 30 hours of education within 2 years of earning the credential. There are several types of activities that qualify: education, project experience, authorship and volunteering. Access the CMP Guide for additional information about LEED professional credential maintenance.

LEED AP BD+C Continuing Education

LEED-specific is defined as an activity that has an explicit connection to a rating system. For LEED AP BD+C credential holders, LEED-specific CE hours must relate directly to the rating systems within the BD+C reference guide.

Reporting Timelines

All continuing education courses must be taken before your credential period expires. Fortunately, there is a slight grace period where credential holders have 90 days to report hours. You will not be able to earn hours during this time. But it gives you a few extra months to fill out the online forms. If you don’t report enough hours, your credential will expire. Therefore, educate yourself and renew before the due date.

Be Honest

GBCI will audit a percentage of all credential holders at regular intervals to ensure that they have the documentation to substantiate their claims of continuing education. GBCI also reserves the right to review any reported CE hours at any time. If you are selected for an audit, we will ask you to verify your completed activities with the appropriate documentation, so be sure to save documentation of hours earned. During this process, GBCI hopes to get a better sense of your experience pursuing CMP activities.
