Talk About It
A LEED professional credential signiﬁes that you have green building expertise and it shows a clear commitment to professional growth, while underscoring your value to LEED project teams and sustainability-focused organizations. LEED for Building Design and Construction (LEED BD+C) provides a framework for designing and constructing a new holistic green building, giving you the chance to nail down every sustainability feature from the ground up, maximizing the benefits.
AIA Dallas and USGBC Texas will present an 8-hour LEED AP BD+C exam preparation class, meeting for 2 hours on each of the last 4 Tuesdays in January. The course will cover the specifics of the LEED BD+C system, including:
- The process of registering for, studying for, and taking the LEED AP BD+C specialty exam
An overview of the knowledge and task domains of the LEED AP BD+C specialty exam
- The concepts, themes and structure of the LEED v4 BD+C rating system
Participants are assumed to already have knowledge of the framework of USGBC and the core concepts required to obtain a LEED Green Associate credential.
Recommended study materials will be outlined, in addition to covering what you need to know. Purchase one or more of the following books, if you want a detailed study guide:
- LEED Reference Guide for Building Design + Construction
- Study Bundle: LEED BD+C Study Guide and LEED Reference Guide for BD+C
- LEED AP BD+C Candidate Handbook (v4)
