LEED Credential Maintenance:
All LEED professionals are required to maintain their credentials by earning continuing education hours.
LEED Green Associates must complete fifteen (15) continuing education hours.
LEED APs with specialty must complete thirty (30) continuing education hours within the two-year reporting period. Twenty-four (24) of the hours are general CE related to green building and six (6) hours must be “specific”.
Continuing education requirements for your AP credential must be completed within a two-year period. If you pass the LEED AP BD+C exam on November 18, 2019, your 2-year reporting period ends on November 17, 2021, and the next period begins on November 18, 2021. You have 90 days after the reporting period ends to report your hours to the USGBC but cannot apply any CE earned during this time period to the reporting period which recently ended. More details can be found in the official CMP guide.
