October has come so soon! Before we know it, the holidays will be here. This also means that time is running out for LEED APs without specialty to enroll into the new credentialing system. The free enrollment window is staggered and arranged alphabetically. It started closing in the beginning of August and will continue through the end of October. Have you taken advantage of this opportunity to switch to a specialty credential?</p>
It is free to enroll and you will have two years to complete the CMP credit requirements. There is no penalty if you do not complete the CE hours after switching over, so it is better to enroll than miss out on the chance to upgrade for free if you are undecided about pursuing an AP specialty.
Not sure when your enrollment window is? Log in into My Credentials on GBCI’s website to find out.
You can contact GBCI (Call 1-800-795-1746) if you missed your enrollment date.
If you are already enrolled and started taking our CE courses, here are some updates on LEED CMP:
CMP Improvement: Subcategory now optional
To make reporting CE hours easier, you no longer have to enter a subcategory when reporting courses.
However, if you’d like to add one, it is optional.
CE Course Catalog has moved to the GBCI Site from the USGBC site.
The USGBC site no longer has a full course catalog and instead lists only USGBC courses now.
To access the full catalog of courses from all providers, click here.
To find our (GBRI) courses on the GBCI Catalog, simply search “GBRI” in the search field.
LEED Professional Credentials Achieve ANSI Accreditation
Recently, the LEED AP Building Design + Construction, LEED AP Interior Design + Construction and LEED AP Neighborhood Development credentials joined the LEED AP Operations + Maintenance, LEED AP Homes and LEED Green Associate in this category. Only 34 other certification bodies have achieved ANSI accreditation. Read more here.
If you are looking for more CE hours or for LEED project participation opportunities, we at GBRI are here for you. We offer 30 CE hour packages that meet all the GBCI requirements for BD+C, O+M, ID+C and Homes. If you already completed some of your CE hours, you can build your own 20, 15, or 10 CE hour package. Of course, you can also buy any of our individual courses, most of which are 2 CE hours each.
Our next project experience cohort begins on October 20, so if you want to go from being a LEED GA to a LEED AP+ but can’t find the experience, get it from us!
If you are interested in either CE hours or LEED project experience, please check out our storefront.
