Re: [hreg] Questions for any LEED AP certified HREG members out there
- I took a study class through USGBC at the end of last year, and then I took
another one through a local architectural firm, BNIM. Catherine Callaway
was the instructor for the second one and I truly learned a lot. The
classes were indeed expensive, but I passed the "old school" test on the
Ty Stranger-Thorsen, LEED® AP

[hreg] Questions for any LEED AP certified HREG members out there
09/23/2009 02:16 PM
Please respond to hreg
I'm trying to get some questions answered about the LEED AP certification
process and I figured there might be some LEED AP certified people who
belong to the HREG group.
If you are LEED AP certified and able to provide some feedback to the
following questions, please post a reply (you can either reply to the
group, or simply reply to me individually... either one is fine with me).
1) Now that the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has changed
up the certification exams to include mutiple "tiers" of certifications
(e.g. the new "Green Associate" Tier 1 certification), I'm wondering what
might be the best method to prepare for the exams. I found a website (
http://www.greenexamprep.com) that can provide a study guide, a set of
flash cards, and up to four online practice exams for a flat rate (I forget
how much it is off the top of my head). Do any of you have experience with
this particular company, and are their study guides and related materials
worth the cost?
2) The GBCI has a series of training seminars that supposedly prepare
people for the exams, but they are very expensive (e.g. there's a Level 200
"LEED Core Concepts and Strategies" course coming up next month in
Houston... this one-day course is $345 for USGBC members and $445 for
non-members). Are these preperation courses worth the money, or can one
successfully prepare for the LEED exams through self-study methods?
Please reply if you can answer these questions, or if you have any other
input/feedback re: the LEED AP certification process.
Thanks, in advance!
