What is a LEED Green Associate?
The LEED Green Associate credential designates individuals who have a documented, up-to-date understanding of the most current green building principles and practices. The LEED Green Associate is a foundational credential and for many, it is the first step before earning advanced credentials such as the LEED AP with specialty.
What are the eligibility requirements to sit for the LEED Green Associate exam?
The LEED Green Associate exam is open to all individuals. GBCI recommends that candidates taking the LEED Green Associate exam have exposure to LEED and green building concepts through educational courses, volunteering, or work experience before testing.
What language(s) is the LEED Green Associate exam available in?
The primary language for all exams is English. However, we offer several translation options for each exam. Please see the table below for a complete list of available languages. For candidates who elect to test with an available translation, the exam will be presented with a split-screen. The English question and answer choices will be on the right, and the corresponding translation will appear on the left. The use of translators or foreign-language dictionaries during the examination will not be permitted.
Please note that if you choose to take a translated exam, the Introduction, non-disclosure agreement, and tutorial will begin in English. Once these have been completed, your exam will proceed with the translation.
Please be aware the combined exam is not available in all languages. If you cannot find your language option for a combined LEED Green Associate/LEED AP with specialty, you will need to register to take the exams separately.
