If you receive a score of 170 or higher on all required sections of your exam (one part for the LEED Green Associate and both parts for the LEED AP exam), you will be notified that you have successfully earned your LEED credential. Upon receipt of that notification, you are authorized to use the credential title and logo in accordance with the GBCI logo guidelines.
If you elect to be displayed in the LEED Professional Directory
, your listing will be posted when your results are imported into My Credentials.
If you are successful in earning a LEED Professional Credential, you are eligible to receive a certificate for your achievement. Once your exam results have been processed in your My Credentials account, you will receive an email notifying you that you can now request your certificate. Certificates are available in two forms: softcopy (PDF) and a hardcopy. You can view and download the softcopy at any time for free. You can request one free hardcopy each reporting period. Each additional copy costs $25.
In the event that a certificate arrives damaged or does not arrive at all, the certificate will be replaced free of charge. These requests should be made in writing to GBCI credentialing staff at www.gbci.org/contact
> Certificate Status or Replacement Requests.
