New LEED AP Credential Launched

Friday, June 18, 2010

Comment | More

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) announced the launch of a new LEED® Professional Credential™: LEED AP for Neighborhood Development.

GBCI said the LEED AP for Neighborhood Development (LEED AP ND) credential designates the specialized knowledge and experience of professionals participating in the planning and development of environmentally responsible communities. The LEED AP ND exam measures knowledge of the LEED for Neighborhood Development Rating System, introduced by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in April, and the ability to facilitate the LEED project certification process, GBCI said.

“LEED AP for Neighborhood Development professionals will be the driving forces behind future green communities worldwide,” said Peter Templeton, GBCI president. “This credential recognizes leading practitioners committed to the principles of smart growth, neighborhood design and green building.”

The LEED ND Rating System was developed by USGBC in partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Congress for the New Urbanism. It encourages the development of healthier communities by reducing the environmental impact of urban sprawl, increasing alternative transportation choices, and promoting neighborhood walkability and access to public space.

LEED AP ND is part of GBCI’s suite of LEED professional credentials. The credentials are designed to provide employers, policymakers and other stakeholders with assurance of an individual’s green-building knowledge and skills.

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) provides third-party confirmation that specific criteria related to LEED building certification and LEED professional credentialing have been met. GBCI in early 2009 assumed responsibility for administering the LEED building-certification program for the more than 30,000 commercial projects seeking third-party verification of compliance with the LEED green-building rating system.
