The LEED AP Homes Exam
The LEED AP Homes exam will test you on the best practices for the design and construction of a green home. Like the ideal places to locate water heaters and laundry rooms.
There are 100 multiple-choice questions on this exam. All students must test at a Prometric Testing Center. While the Green Associate exam tests general green-building knowledge, this AP exam is much more specific. The Homes exam focuses on thresholds required to earn LEED Homes certification, like installing at least R-4 insulation on all domestic hot water piping.
The exam is a closed-book professional credential exam. So you better put in ample study time.
