LEED Green Associate Exam

Today I took and passed the LEED Green Associate Exam. The exam basically measures your overall understanding of the green building process and how it relates to LEED certification.

For those of you not familiar with LEED, it is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED was created by the U.S. Green Building Council, and is the leading national certification process by which registered green building projects are rated. Additionally, LEED is an accreditation program for people interested in increasing their knowledge base for various forms of green building and design, and then putting that knowledge to a comprehensive, no-nonsense test.

Overall, I have been very impressed by the streamlined resources, education, and levels of measurement that LEED offers, as well as their emphasis on on staying current with constantly updated information and technology. I most definitely plan to continue my participation with this program now and in the future. Thanks USGBC!
