FAQ for the LEED GA Class:

Q: Should I register for this training?
A: This training is intended for anyone who wants assistance preparing for the USGBC Green Associate exam, especially those without an architectural or engineering background. It will provide an interactive method to learning the material that is required to pass the LEED GA exam. The LEED GA exam is primarily focused on general green building principles through the lens of LEED.

Q: Will I need to do anything besides participate in the training to pass the LEED AP exam?
A: Study time outside class is essential. How much will depend on the individual. The training will provide guidance and structure, tips and techniques, sample questions and homework exercises to help you prepare. It will also be necessary to study the entire Green Exam Prep Study Guide because that is the primary material tested on the exam.

Q: After participating in the training, when should I take the LEED GA exam?
A: You should allow sufficient time after the last session to review the material and prepare for the LEED GA exam. It is recommended you take the test within a month after finishing the class depending on your familiarity with LEED, your test-taking skills, and the amount of time you spend studying between classes. You have to be achieving 90% on your practice tests to pass.

Good luck and contact us any time for questions and encouragement.
