How do I confirm the date and time of my scheduled exam?
Upon scheduling your LEED exam with Prometric, you will receive an “Appointment Confirmation” email sent by Prometric (firstname.lastname@example.org) which will include your exam date and time. Note that the exam time will be written in the 24-hour notation in the form hh:mm (e.g., 16:00 to denote 3:00 P.M, or 03:00 to denote 3:00 A.M.) along with your time zone.
Another way to confirm your exam appointment date and time is to visit prometric.com/gbci and confirm your exam appointment by entering your 16-digit confirmation number included in your “Appointment Confirmation” email and entering the first four characters of your last name. If you are not able to locate the confirmation email, please check your spam, junk or clutter folders
I am unable to schedule my exam within my exam eligibility period. Can I get an extension?
Once you register and pay for your exam, you have 12 months to schedule and take your exam session. If you are unable to take your exam during your 12-month eligibility period, you may request a one-time courtesy extension of six months. Please contact GBCI before the end of your exam eligibility period to request an extension.
Can I ask for Testing Accommodations when I take my exam?
GBCI complies with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you require testing accommodations, you must check the box that says, “Yes, I need testing accommodations,” when you register for the exam. You and your healthcare provider each need to complete the following forms: the Candidate Form and the Provider Form, to document the disability and the need for accommodation.
For remote proctored online exams, Prometric may not be able to accommodate all requests since candidates are taking the exam in a remote location.
Each request is evaluated individually and may take up to ten (10) business days. Your request may only be sent via email to email@example.com or faxed to (202) 545-3708. Do not mail any documents or send them to gbci.org/contact. You will be contacted by email with the status of your request.
Can I take a test drive of the exam?
You have the option of taking a Test Drive which will provide you the opportunity to take a 30-minute ‘dry-run” of the complete check-in and test delivery process through Prometric’s test centers or online via the ProProctor platform. To learn about the Test Drive and schedule an appointment, please visit the Test Drive page.
What options do I have for taking the LEED exam (testing center or remote)?
How do I schedule my exam if I want to go to a Prometric test center?
To schedule your exam, log into your credentials account and click "Schedule/Reschedule exam at a test center." You will then be redirected to the Prometric website where you can schedule your exam. Alternatively, you can click "schedule" under the "test center exam" heading at https://www.prometric.com/gbci. You will need your EID and the first four digits of your last name to schedule your exam.
Can I retest if I failed my LEED exam?
If you fail your first attempt at taking the exam you may register and pay again in the same way as the initial registration. After three unsuccessful attempts within a 12-month period, you must wait 90 calendar days before submitting a new registration and payment to GBCI. You must pay the exam registration fee for each exam attempt.
Are calculators permitted on LEED exams?
A four-function calculator is available on-screen as part of your test center and remotely proctored online exam. If you are taking your exam at a test center and would prefer to use a physical calculator, you may use one that is supplied by Prometric at the test center.
Note that physical calculators are not permitted during remotely proctored online exams.
Am I allowed to have scratch paper during my in-person exam?
Candidates taking their exam at a test center are provided with either a dry erase board or two pieces of scratch paper and either a pen or pencil, depending on the test center. Mechanical pencils or pens that click are not allowed.
What if I pass only one part of the combined exam?
If you pass one part of the combined LEED Green Associate and LEED AP with specialty exam, you will have to retake only the part you failed. Please note that you are subject to the restrictions of three exams. For example, if it is your first attempt, you will have two additional attempts to take and pass the part you failed. If after three unsuccessful attempts, however, you must wait 90 days before submitting a new registration to GBCI. Candidates must pay the registration fee for each exam attempt.
If I take a combined LEED Green Associate and LEED AP with specialty exam, do I get a break between the first part and second part of the exam?
No, there is no break between Part 1 and Part 2 of the exam. You may get up and leave your seat for an unscheduled break (with permission from the test center staff), but the time allowed for your exam does not change, and the exam timer is not paused while you are away.
If I study for an exam in July, will there be new material on the exam when I test in August?
LEED professional exams are updated on August 1 of every year following an exam review process. Questions are reviewed in accordance with updates to the LEED standards (LEED addenda) to ensure that the exams remain statistically reliable and valid. While the scope of the exam will not change following the exam review process, the material on the exam may include recent LEED addenda.
Can I see the questions that I missed?
No, GBCI does not release exam content or answers or allow candidates to review proprietary content under any circumstances.
What identification is required to check in for my exam?
Your ID must have your name printed in Roman characters and must match exactly the name that was used to register for your exam. The ID presented must also:
- Be in the original form (laminated or plasticized) it was issued. No photocopies or duplicates will be accepted.
- Be valid. The ID must include an issue date and an expiration date. Note: the ID cannot be expired.
- Include a recent, recognizable photo.
- Include a signature.
If your main form of ID does not meet all of the criteria above, you may present a secondary ID that fulfills the missing elements. Please refer to the Candidate Handbook (LEED Green Associate) (LEED AP) for additional information. If you find you have an insufficient ID or that the name on your ID does not match the name on your registration, please contact GBCI at least fifteen (15) days prior to your exam appointment.
