Leave the Competition Behind. Whether you are a freelance designer, or head of a multi-million dollar corporation, it is important to stay on top of the cutting edge trends in your industry. In this economy, you can't risk losing out on bids and potential business because you aren't in the know. Having an Accredited Professional on staff can be a highly marketable asset. For example, did you know that all GBCI registered projects that have an Accredited Professional on the job receive an extra point towards the project certification? This easy, single point can be the difference between the project being awarded a Gold versus Silver status. This is just one of many examples of why having an Accredited Professional on staff can give you an edge over your competition.
Signify Your Green Building Expertise. You've worked hard to become educated on green building concepts and strategies. Turn this knowledge into a tangible credential, developed and backed by the U.S. Green Building Council. The Green Associate and Accredited Professional credentials have gained national and global notoriety as the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system becomes one of the most widely used standards for green building and design. Having these credentials after your name and on your resume will help you become a more attractive candidate for green jobs, consulting gigs, and other opportunities in the green building field.
New Directions, New Business. Capitalize on the Green Collar economy. Whether you are looking to start a new career path, or develop new business for your company, accreditation can be a stepping-stone to new contacts and new opportunities for success in the green building and design fields.
Make a Difference in How We Design & Build. Many current methods used in the building industry can be harmful to our planet, our communities, and even our health. Take action towards improving this system, by learning and implementing more sustainable, eco-friendly, and energy-efficient practices. Whether it's developing improved waste management strategies, or spearheading the installation of a green roof, individuals of all skills and backgrounds can play an integral role in promoting and implementing this change.
With LEED Exam Prep courses available as public courses, in-house training, and online webinars, becoming accredited has never been easier!

Fantastic exam prep seminar presented by Steve Alfaro; informative and knowledgeable, Steve was a fount of information and made the day a great success fielding all manner of industry related questions as they applied to LEED principles. Brilliant!
By Bill F. - Attended class on May 18, 2015
Steve was great! Very knowledgeable about the material and very welcoming to questions! Great class!
By Ladislav D. - Attended class on May 13, 2015
I enjoyed it. Speech rate was adjusted to nonenglishnatives, the 'humanity' was felt in voice very important without visual contact and slides easy to follow. Enjoyed the course.
By Lenka D. - Attended class on May 13, 2015
very good trainning, thank you
By Anna M. - Attended class on May 13, 2015
I have enjoyed it!
By Mehreen S. - Attended class on May 13, 2015
She was great! The knowledge she bought to the table was very valuable, personally to me.
i would have loved to get more of her time in the second half of the study materials, when the topics get a bit harder, There should be an extra 1/2 hour to go over them. And jean would have been the expert opinion on them!
By Eugene C. - Attended class on May 11, 2015
Michael is a great instructor. He was good at pacing the course by minimizing conversations outside of the curriculum. He is knowledgeable about the LEED's certification and accreditation processes.
By Brian B. - Attended class on April 25, 2015
The LEED Associate class was very informative. The instructor was very energetic and made it fun to be in the classroom on a Saturday !
By Eloina L. - Attended class on April 23, 2015
it was good.
By Demetri Z. - Attended class on April 22, 2015

By Paul R. - Attended class on April 20, 2015
She was very good instructor thank you
By Andrew S. - Attended class on April 14, 2015
Tehmina was a great instructor. I think it was good balance of covering knowledge areas as well as what was needed for the test overall. I would study with her again.
By Heather A. - Attended class on April 13, 2015
John was a good instructor. He did a good job covering all of the material.
By Paula B. - Attended class on April 13, 2015
the instructor was very skilled at covering a huge amount of information in a way that was not confusing and that's not easy to do. this test still requires initiative on your part to study intensely after the seminar for 3 or 4 days
By Megan O. - Attended class on April 11, 2015
The instructor was very thorough and not only seemed knowledgeable but also seemed to generally care about the topic he was teaching.
By Eric M. - Attended class on April 9, 2015
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable, my only gripe was that he covered too much during the 4 hour period, it seemed somewhat rushed. If the curriculum was disseminated over the course of two classes I think it would have been better. Still worth the price of admission though!
By Kurt T. - Attended class on April 8, 2015
Instructor has a lot of experience and covered a lot of material very thoroughly.
By Jeremy M. - Attended class on March 26, 2015
Good information. Wish it had more examples of current or previous LEED projects included for reference.
By Don H. - Attended class on March 23, 2015
Instructor was very engaging, articulate and thorough with the material.
Very glad I decided to take the course....instructor was just great.
By James B. - Attended class on March 17, 2015
The instructor, Joan, was, as usual, great I had her before for the GA prep. However, the course itself could use some improvement. Maybe there's just so much info to cover but I felt there were some topics missed and we also didn't have time for enough practice questions.
By Raymond K. - Attended class on March 17, 2015
Too much material for just two days, no real time to review material in class.
By Sharon H. - Attended class on March 13, 2015
Lisa was wonderful and is obviously very knowledgable about working to achieve LEED certification, the exam material, and exam preparation. She was very energetic and I appreciate that she is available after the class via email for questions. Thanks, Lisa!
By Dan H. - Attended class on March 13, 2015
very good and made it interesting and fun
By Travis C. - Attended class on March 13, 2015
Instructor was great, but hard to follow the slides at some points. The Powerpoint didn't match the course hand out, and various times we had to cross out or revise the course hand out. Instructor was great!
By Brad H. - Attended class on March 2, 2015
the course covered a lot of material in a short time. I feel that I know what I need to do to continue preparation for the exam. I am hopeful of passing we''ll see.
By Marshall F. - Attended class on February 26, 2015
As the only present student attending, Jean was not discouraged and conducted the private lesson with a great sense of professionalism. Thank You!
By Justin H. - Attended class on February 25, 2015
Very informative and broad grasp of the program. She was well prepared and well organized in her presentation.
Clearly covering a lot of material in such a short window is quite commendable. Kudos!
By Philip W. - Attended class on February 25, 2015
Great info, good pace...enjoyed ever minute !
By julia n. - Attended class on February 19, 2015
Great personality! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Time passed by fast and effective. Would recommend this class to anybody. A lot of useful information and study materials. Thank you
By Serra U. - Attended class on February 19, 2015
A very well organised course. Jean is great, very helpful and passionate about what she teaches which makes her caring and successful tutor. The course content is very clear and the time was well managed throughout the workshop. With this workshop, practice test GBCI sends you afterwards and some reviewing of the material will be sufficient to pass the test.
By Raymond K. - Attended class on February 19, 2015
Jean was great i would highly recommend her.
By Eric H. - Attended class on February 17, 2015
Michael did a wonderful job at making the information accessible and helping the class become ready for the exam.
By Paul H. - Attended class on February 17, 2015
Our instructor was very good and obviously knew his subject matter but although he encouraged questions, he seemed at time like he was going through the material very quickly.
By BENITA M. - Attended class on February 17, 2015
I think the material was well covered. Unfortunately, the commute to and from Sorrento Valley was terrible. 2hours to and from, and that was just my commute. 4 hours on the road sucks. Especially when I am 19 miles away. I believe I will pass the exam, and our instructor left his availability if we need to contact him. We did have someone in our class that talked a bit too much, and he knew more, which took away from the learning we needed. The instructor picked up on it, and tried to make sure that everyone was included in the dialogue not just the know it all. He was very distracting, and took away from a couple other guys who were having some difficulty with the material. But it is up to us to make sure we get the studying in, memorize what we need and get the exam over with. I have already scheduled my exam for next month, and hope I do well to pass. The rest is up to me to cover the material and put the study time in. Thank you.
By Noel G. - Attended class on February 17, 2015
I understand there is a lot of information to cover; the class went by fast and the instructor was knowledgeable.
By Kathleen H. - Attended class on February 10, 2015
She was very knowledgeable and informative. I liked that she gave us a lot of breaks and was always willing to answer the questions we had.
By Sean M. - Attended class on February 10, 2015
She was very informative and taught the class well.
I liked the handouts and book for studying and I think it is in a helpful format for studying.
By Richard P. - Attended class on January 20, 2015
Passed LEED Green Associate exam 194. Thanks!
By Angela C. - Attended class on January 16, 2015
Wonderful and informative. Class did not drag and Jean really emphasized what we need to know for the test.
By Lisa C. - Attended class on January 16, 2015
Jean gave me a very good understanding of the steps necessary to becoming a LEED Green Associate. She also elucidated the importance of furthering the implementation of sustainable construction and design across all types of structures and climates.
By Michael B. - Attended class on January 13, 2015
Concise and thorough. Instructor was helpful and I would recommend it to anyone.
By Christian S. - Attended class on January 13, 2015
The instructor was very knowledgeable of the content and the variations between the old and the new versions. Very laid back but interactive atmosphere was very positive, welcomed, and productive.
There were a few questions that were asked that were very specific to particular projects that were asked that were answered to the best of the instructors ability based on how it would be considered under the old standards vs. the new standards. These moments were very engaging and another positive point in the class.
Overall, a good experience.
By Jim N. - Attended class on January 13, 2015
Knowledgeable and hard working. Flexible with schedule. Sincerely wanted us to learn the material and do well on the exam.
By Luke R. - Attended class on January 13, 2015
The course was a helpful professional environment. Could have been vastly improved if the instructor was LEED AP certified, rather than just LEED Green Associate.
By Corey G. - Attended class on January 12, 2015
I thought the course was well laid out...going over exactly what we need to focus on for the exam. One issue that I personally had was there were slides added in that were not in the book that was shipped out. Not a big deal because the software that was used for the webinar allowed for screen shots to occur. The instructor was very personable and covered the material nicely. I have not taken the exam yet, but I am confident that the prep class has prepared me well. Thanks
By Yonara N. - Attended class on January 8, 2015
While it was nice to review the content of the book, I don't particularly feel like I've learned much at all about the test itself or the material. The bulk of the course was reading through the power point presentation that mirrors the participant book provided exactly. Having taken prep exams before and noticing the tricky nature of the exam, I hoped for more clarity on how to prepare for those questions more than knowing the core of factual information/reading through content. It was ok overall but I don't feel I've gained anything.
By Marcia K. - Attended class on January 8, 2015
She was great. Very knowledgable and strongly encouraged questions. Did research on questions during breaks and gave more details. Highly recommend her as an instructor.
Unrelated to her, we could use a bit more time to cover all the material. It's pretty dense. A few more hours would have been helpful. But I learned a lot and look forward to taking the test. Best. Marcia
By Alex D. - Attended class on January 8, 2015
Jean was very helpful for me and guided me through the LEED subject manner at a steady pace and gave ample time for any questions that needed to be answered. As a word of advice for future students be very careful when reading the questions and look out for the choose 2 and choose 3 questions, as they can be very tricky. Sometimes you even have to choose 4! I would highly recommend taking a course instructed by Jean whether you're a slow or fast learner.
