Finding A LEED Accredited Professional

Interested in locating a LEED Accredited Professional ("AP") in your area? Do you even know what a LEED AP is?

Green Building Certification Institute ("GBCI")was established in January 2008 to provide third-party project certification and professional credentials for the purpose of recognizing excellence in green building performance and practice. The GBCI assumed credentialing for LEED professionals in January 2009.

While the
U.S. Green Building Council handles the development of the LEED Rating System, it was determined that the LEED professional credentialing program should be independently administered under the GBCI to better ensure a balanced, objective management of the credentialing program including exam development, application, registration, and delivery.
