Every day, nearly 100 people decide to join the ranks of credentialed LEED, SITES and WELL professionals. They learn about the opportunity to become experts in green building and environmental sustainability, they sign up for one of the test prep courses, study and register to take their exam.

GBCI credential exams are delivered at Prometric testing centers, which are available in 160 countries. In regions where traveling to a testing center presents a challenge, or if a large group wishes to schedule their exams together, GBCI now offers the Alternative Exam Delivery (AED) program to meet these needs.

AED events allow candidates to sit for any GBCI credentialing exam alongside their peers in the familiar surroundings of their classroom, conference room or computer lab. GBCI partners with Prometric and the hosting facility to make sure the candidate testing experience is identical to that of a traditional Prometric testing center.

An AED event is a good option for employers and educators who would prefer to test as a group without requiring that participants travel to a different location. For groups who prefer the traditional test center experience, GBCI also offers the option to reserve seats at a preferred Prometric testing center so your group can test at the same place and time.

Are you planning to incorporate the LEED Green Associate or LEED AP exam into your lesson plan this semester? Got a whole project team looking to become SITES APs or WELL APs? Take a look at the Alternative Exam Delivery Guidelines and fill out the application form. GBCI will work with your organization to schedule an AED event that fits your schedule and location.
