The GBCI credentialing team consists of internal and external expert psychometricians who develop, design and maintain the credentialing exams. The exams are administered by Prometric, GBCI’s test development partner, and they assess whether working professionals have the minimum competencies to perform their jobs.
LEED professional credentials
GBCI develops and administers the ANSI 17024 accredited LEED professional credential exams, which include the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP with specialty credentials, as well as the LEED for Homes Green Rater and LEED Project Reviewer professional certificates.
The Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) for LEED professionals is also overseen by GBCI. Continuing education keeps LEED professionals at the forefront of the green building industry, driving ongoing excellence in the marketplace and ensuring that LEED professionals are the most qualified in the field.
WELL Accredited Professional credential
New to GBCI’s credentialing offerings, the WELL AP program provides professionals with the opportunity to demonstrate advanced knowledge in human health and wellness in the built environment. A passing score on the WELL AP exam — developed and designed using GBCI’s comprehensive testing guidelines — is required to receive the WELL AP credential.
WELL accredited professionals have a documented, full understanding of the industry’s latest principles and practices, along with a specialization in the WELL Building Standard program. They consistently prove their excellence and qualifications in their respective fields by fulfilling ongoing requirements to maintain their credential.
