SPECIAL TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS
Candidates with a documented disability that prevents them from taking a LEED Professional Exam under normal testing conditions may request reasonable accommodations as required by law. Reasonable accommodations are granted to ensure that every candidate has the opportunity to test on an even field with other candidates, but not to provide any candidate with an unfair advantage over other candidates. Accommodation requests are considered on a case-by-case basis.
To request special accommodations, indicate this request in the exam application and submit the Candidate form (completed by the candidate) and the Provider form (completed by the health care provider) at gbci.org/contact.
These two forms require you to provide the following information:
- Diagnosis and nature of the disability
- Name of tests used to evaluate the condition
- Length of the condition
- Date you were last seen by your health care provider
- Specific suggested accommodation(s)
GBCI credentialing staff will review this documentation within 30 days of the submittal of your application and, if approved, will alert Prometric of the necessary accommodations. Candidates who request special testing accommodations for a LEED Professional Exam will not be able to schedule an appointment with Prometric until their request is approved and arrangements have been made with Prometric. Candidates will be contacted by email regarding the approval status of their special testing accommodations request. There is no additional charge for special accommodations.
Prometric, the third party administrator of the LEED Professional Exams,certifies that it shall comply with the provisions of the Americanswith Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the ADA, entities that administerstandardized examinations must offer the examinations in a place andmanner that is accessible to candidates with disabilities. This mayrequire reasonable modifications to the manner in which the test isadministered. Prometric will provide candidates reasonable auxiliaryaids and services, except where it may fundamentally alter the validityof the exam results. Available accommodations include, but are notlimited to, a reader, a scribe, and extended testing time.
