Testing for New ‘Green’ Credentials Begins

Friday, June 5, 2009

Comment | More

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has begun testing candidates for the new LEED Green Associate credential or the new LEED Accredited Professional (AP) Operations and Maintenance (O+M) credential.

GBCI, established in January 2008, administers project certification for commercial and institutional buildings and tenant spaces under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating Systems™, addressing new construction and ongoing operations. GBCI also manages the professional credentialing programs based upon the LEED Rating Systems, including the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP credentials.

The LEED Green Associate credential is intended for individuals seeking to expand their expertise into the green-building industry, the GBCI said. The credential represents the demonstrable knowledge and skills needed in the allied professions and non-technical fields of practice related to green design, construction, and operations.  It is also the first step for professionals if they later choose to become a LEED AP.

The LEED AP O+M credential recognizes the advanced knowledge in sustainable operations and specialized expertise in best management practices required for greening existing buildings. The new credential was designed to be consistent with the knowledge base and requirements of the recently issued LEED 2009 rating system.

Attaining the LEED AP O+M credential is a two-part process requiring a candidate to pass the LEED Green Associate exam, demonstrating general knowledge, and a second operations and maintenance specialty exam.

More information on the exam structure, eligibility requirements, and maintenance programs for these credentials is available on the website located at www.gbci.org
