LEED Certification is for buildings. Buildings upon completion earn LEED Certification. LEED Accreditation is for individuals. Individuals who pass one of the LEED credentialing exams become LEED Accredited.

Do I need both live and on-demand courses?

No. Live, on-demand courses and articles carry equal weight for GBCI credential maintenance, and you do not need to complete all types to maintain your LEED credential. Some other professional accreditations may require live course participation, please check with the organizations which you are a member of for their specific requirements.

All our courses have been reviewed by USGBC and AIA to guarantee that the information presented is accurate, up-to-date, and relevant for green building industry professionals. Only approved courses can be automatically reported for you to AIA and USGBC. In addition approved courses are also exempt from audits when you renew your credential.
