Today I received my LEED Green Associate credential! I passed my exam on Friday and today the Green Building Certification Institute officially delivered my recognition. I am now allowed to use the LEED Green Associate title in my email signature and on business cards.
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The Green Associate credential denotes a basic knowledge of green building practices and principles and LEED. I spent close to a month studying for the exam and was thrilled to pass on the first try.
LEED Green Associate represents the first tier of three available:
1) LEED Green Associate
2) LEED AP with specialty
3) LEED Fellow
My next goal will be to obtain the required LEED project experience to be eligible to write the LEED AP exam. I will probably specialize in Operations and Maintenance.
