Our courses have been pre-approved through our educational affiliates so you are guaranteed to get the credits you need to earn or maintain your LEED credential and AIA license.

We are always looking to expand our network of educational affiliates to better serve our clients. If you believe you have a course that would be a good fit for our website, please email details to info@greenv4.com.

All of these courses are pre-approved for AIA and GBCI (LEED). They may be used for other programs as well. However, you will need to check each specific program because these programs are most likely state specific and requirements may change.

LEED Green Associates and LEED APs with specialty maintain their credential by earning continuing education hours every two years. LEED Green Associates must earn 15 continuing education hours and LEED APs must earn 30 continuing education hours.

You have access to all of your courses for 1 year unless otherwise specified by your package selection (ex: 2 or 4 year Unlimited Access CE License packages.)

You can complete your courses on any device that is compatible and displays PDF files through Adobe Flash Player. Downloading a Flash Player application may be required for some devices.

The process is designed to facilitate continued professional development within the field of green building, thus growing knowledge and experience and improving job performance. Access the CMP Guide for additional information about credential maintenance.

There are two ways to report your hours. If your reporting period is coming up soon then you will need to self report you hours at GBCI.org under you “my credentials” account. This will allow your hours to be approved by GBCI within 24-48 hours. If you are not in a hurry to get your hours in, you can auto report through our educational affiliate GBRI. This process is very easy but it does take longer for your hours to show in your GBCI account. Please email us at info@greenv4.com for details.

We are an independent business and are not related to GBCI or USGBC. All of the courses we offer have been approved by GBCI’s education review board through our educational affiliates.
