FYI: LEED Credentialing Maintenance Program (CMP) – read last sentence!!
Enrollment Options: LEED APs without specialty will be provided with an enrollment window, a 2-year period between fall 2009 and fall 2011. LEED APs without specialty can view their enrollment window through My Credentials at http://www.gbci.org. The last enrollment windows close October 27, 2011.
During the enrollment window, LEED APs without specialty have two options:
Option 1: Become a LEED AP with one (or more) of the BD+C, Homes, ID+C, ND, or O+M specialty designations by passing one (or more) of the new specialty exams.
Option 2: Become a LEED AP with one (or more) of the BD+C, ID+C, or O+M specialty designations by completing the prescriptive CMP requirements for the initial 2-year reporting period.
LEED APs without specialty who enroll prior to December 31, 2009 will be eligible to earn CE hours for all volunteer and committee work completed since January 1, 2009 and all other activities completed since July 8, 2009. Please note that LEED APs without specialty who enroll after December 31, 2009 can only count CE hours earned during their CMP reporting period.
Enrollment will be open for two years. After a LEED AP’s enrollment window, he/she must apply and take both sections of the LEED AP exam (the Green Associate and the specialty exam) to become a LEED AP with specialty. If LEED APs without specialty choose not to enroll, they will continue to be a LEED AP without specialty in the LEED Professional Directory. LEED APs without specialty are not required to do any credentialing maintenance or pay any fees to remain in the LEED Professional Directory.
