More About LEED Green Buildings & LEED AP Certification

LEED may be applicable to individuals and/or buildings. An important distinguishing factor to consider is that LEED Accreditation is for individuals while LEED Certification is for buildings.

LEED Accreditation is broken down into 3 separate categories or tiers and is achieved by taking and passing the different LEED exams. Everyone has to first start with LEED Green Associate and from there move on to become a LEED AP with a certain Specialty. The current pass rate for the LEED exams is 34% making a prep course the best option to ensure success when pursuing your accreditation.

LEED Certification is awarded to green building projects that incorporate a significant amount of LEED sustainability strategies. There is essentially a laundry list of concepts an items that a project can do that would benefit the environment. Once a project team decides that they want to attempt LEED certification for their LEED-registered project, they then need to follow numerous requirements to maintain that their project qualifies as a green building through the LEED certification process. There are 4 levels of LEED certification: LEED Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Thank you!

   By John H. - Attended class on June 20, 2013

The instructor made the webinar interesting, and the time went by rather quickly for a 4 hour session. Since many students including myself are from Canada, a little knoledge of our laws would be helpfull.

   By Joshua G. - Attended class on June 20, 2013

Alexis was great. She took the time to answer questions and engage the class while at the same time covering all of the material. The presentation and associated visuals were great and really helped me to grasp the concepts of LEED BDC. The hard copy handbook provided with the course also helped me to follow along and make notes.

   By Pablo H. - Attended class on April 18, 2013

Great instructor, Kimberly explained everything well. I was able to understand the concepts.

   By Scott D. - Attended class on April 18, 2013

Kimberly did a good job keeping everone envolved. The pace of the class was good but not too slow that you would loose interest.

   By Laura H. - Attended class on April 18, 2013

Kimberly was very nice and made it clear that she is available to answer any questions that we may have even after the course has ended.

   By Lindsey T. - Attended class on April 16, 2013

Kimberly was good. She's very helpful, and engaging and makes the class as conversational as you can get in a webinar. She answers whatever questions you have, and follows up if she doesn't have an immediate answer.

   By Alan Z. - Attended class on April 12, 2013

Kimberly is very attentive to her students and was happy to answer questions and provide advice.

   By Pablo H. - Attended class on April 11, 2013

Alexis was very knowledgeable in the subjects she covered which there was many. The class itself was well structured. I do recommend people to take these online webinars.

   By Jarett C. - Attended class on April 8, 2013

Overall it was very good. Could have used more review question time.

   By Mary Ann F. - Attended class on March 15, 2013

Kimberly Rodale was well prepared and sensitive to the needs of the class. Her presentation of the material was fast paced and thorough. I do think this could be a two day class.

   By Patrick A. H. - Attended class on March 15, 2013

Alot of info to absorb in one day.

   By Frank J. O. - Attended class on March 15, 2013

This instructor moved through at a good pace, was clear and concise. Was also pleasant about answering questions.

   By Helen Allison M. - Attended class on March 5, 2013

She was overall good. We lost audio a few times, that was kind of annoying, but she handled that well. She did sound kind of like a "valley girl" but I have a very southern accent so I'm not complaining!

   By Shawn M. - Attended class on March 5, 2013

Alexis presented the material in a way that was easy to follow and gave good pointers on methods for memorization.

   By Lisa A. - Attended class on February 25, 2013

Alexis was awesome! I really liked he teaching. I've never taken a webinar before and I must say if they were all like that with Alexis I would take classes left and right.

   By Kat B. - Attended class on February 25, 2013

I've never taken an online class before, but Alexis was very personable and got us through a lot of information in just a short period of time. She answered our questions knowledgably and kept the pace going.
I don't know how I'll do on the test, but if I pass on the first go round, it will be thanks to Alexis......and a million hours of studying.

   By Matthew S. - Attended class on February 18, 2013

I thought Kimberly was great. She was very helpful and answered all of our questions. If she did not have an immediate answer she researched it and got back to us quickly. She was able to go through the material at an appropriate pace and was just nice to boot. Really enjoyed the experience.

   By Kristen M. - Attended class on February 11, 2013

Alexis was great. She kept us involved in the training so you were never bored staring at your screen.

The review questions were very helpful to reinforce what we had just learned.

I feel that as long as I study the study materials provided from the course, I'll be able to pass the LEED AP test no problem.

Thank You!

   By Nour A. - Attended class on December 10, 2012

It was a very useful experience, and the instructor was very cooperative.
She clarified the main points and helped in digesting the material well.
Class participation helped alot, as she encouraged us to interact and ask or answer questions.

Overall, it had been a good experience and I would recommend it to friends for sure.

all good!

   By Mae R. - Attended class on December 10, 2012

The class was not bad but not excellent. It was acceptable.

   By Levent O. - Attended class on December 10, 2012

I would give 5 stars. Everything was perfect.

   By Banah M. - Attended class on December 10, 2012

The trainer is very friendly, approachable and provided a lot of helpful information during the 2 training sessions.

   By Logan G. - Attended class on December 10, 2012

Pro Stayed on schedule, hit all the content in the slides. Good understanding of the material. Answered questions well.

Con Didn't add a lot of content beyond what was on the slides. Sometimes got off track due to questions

   By Roger D. - Attended class on November 13, 2012

Credits were explained effectively, and all questions answered. It was a very good presentation, and will recommend Tiffonie to my agency for future training.

   By Kristin L. - Attended class on October 25, 2012

Kimberly was very knowledgeable and helpful. The course covered everything well, and I love the fact that the study guide was sent beforehand in the mail. The only comment I have is that I wish the sessions were recorded so that we could then go back through and listen at our own pace and spend more time on the information we may have more difficulties with.

   By Brian R. - Attended class on September 21, 2012

Kimberly had a good answer to almost every question. Her extensive LEED project experience really helped her in providing accurate and detailed answers for the groups questions

   By Shakia H. - Attended class on July 31, 2012

Kimberly was absolutely wonderful and offered lots of help even after the course was over. She helped me get a great score on the exam.

   By Ronny D. - Attended class on July 10, 2012

It was all I was expecting it to be.
Kimberly was an excellent teacher.

   By Hyunmin O. - Attended class on July 10, 2012

The webinar was well prepared and organized, but was not enough to give students the theme of the real exam questions. The reason why more than half of the first exam takers fail is that they do not understand to study the concepts rather than just memorizing numbers, I think.

   By Tracy A. - Attended class on June 18, 2012

Kim did a great job! She had a great attitude and kept the course ontime and as fun as it can be It was challenging communicating through the chat function, but she was always mindful of it. Thanks!
