LEED Specialty Exams – Shape Your LEED Career

Back to Home
Environmentally friendly buildings have been increasing in popularity in the last decade or so. Green architecture has become a more viable option due in part to the gradually decreasing cost to manufacture and support ecofriendly building materials and systems. Green builders are helping to make the world a brighter, cleaner place, and you can be on the frontlines of change by becoming a LEED® certified professional. The rapidly growing demand for greener buildings has left a gap in the market for individuals properly trained to take a project forward a greener way. But what is LEED, and how can you make a career out of it?
What is LEED?
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, was designed to be used to identify and implement green building design, maintenance, operations, construction and demolition. It is a collection of systems used to design and maintain not only green buildings, but also homes, or even whole neighbourhoods. Becoming accredited in your knowledge of the LEED rating systems not only gives you the title of LEED Green Associate, or LEED AP, but tells the world that you care enough about the environmental impact structures have to step up and do something about it. It means you have the knowledge and will to shape our world into a better future.
Your LEED Career
As with any great profession, your green career starts with education. A certification program that is internationally recognized as the standard in green building helps building owners and operators by providing them with the information and tools required to have a major impact on their buildings performance that can be measured and rated. This professional credential helps to show the level of competence to the people looking to go green with their projects. Employers and policymakers alike can rest assured that a job candidate who is LEED certified has the know how to get things off on the right foot. As a LEED administrator or consultant, your position will be satisfying and fast-paced. You will likely be in contact with many project heads from design and architecture to the development team constructing the project. You may be responsible for performing LEED specific quality control reviews of construction documents. Many LEED professionals are responsible for navigating the LEED online system for registering projects and assigning team members their roles and responsibilities as they relate to green building and design. The positions you may be eligible for include, but are not limited to:
  • Architectural Engineer
  • LEED Accredited Data Centre Engineer
  • Project LEED Coordinator
  • LEED Consultant
  • LEED Program Manager
Becoming a LEED Accredited Professional opens a lot of doors, and each of those doors lead to a promising future.
