Current LEED APs have 3 options

If you are a LEED AP certified before the testing requirements changed in April 1, 2009, you will have 3 options, please see the link below at the GBCI website GBCI: Enrollment FAQS to read in full detail.

Below is a quick excerpt on  GBCI: Enrollment FAQS and current LEED AP options:

“Q: How do I fit into the new tiered system as a LEED AP credentialed under New Construction, Commercial Interiors, or Existing Buildings?
A: LEED APs credentialed under NC, CI, or EB have three options:

  1. Become a LEED AP with specialty by enrolling in the new tiered system—i.e. agreeing to the Credentialing Maintenance Program (CMP) and signing the disciplinary policy—and completing prescriptive CMP for the initial 2-year reporting period. Once you have enrolled, you will use one of the new specialty designations (O&M, BD&C, ID&C) after your name.  Enrollment must occur before summer 2011.
  2. Become a LEED AP with specialty by passing one of the new specialty examinations; only the specialty part of the exam will be required if testing by summer 2011. When applying for the exam you will need to sign the disciplinary policy and agree to CMP.  You will need to complete the ongoing CMP for your designation and will use one of the new specialty designations (O&M, BD&C, ID&C) after your name.
  3. Do nothing; you will be designated a LEED AP without specialty in the LEED Professional Directory.” (source: GBCI: Enrollment FAQS)

    Great further explanation about what a LEED AP can do now that v.3 has started. By 2011 we’ll need to make 1 of 3 choices.
