LEED AP Credential Maintenance Program Launched
The Green Building Certification Institute has released credential maintenance requirements for LEED APs, including education and fees.
The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) announced several changes to the LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) program in November 2008. Among those changes was the addition of a credential maintenance program that would require those at all levels of LEED accreditation to obtain a certain number of continuing education hours every two years to maintain their status.
The program, launched August 3, 2009, requires LEED APs to earn 30 hours every two years and LEED Green Associates, the new lower-tier credential, to earn 15 hours. Some of these hours must be LEED-specific, and some of those must be rating system-specific. LEED APs will also need to pay a biennial fee of $50.
