LEED® Accredited Professional (AP) with Specialty

Distinguish yourself as a LEED AP

The LEED AP credential arms you with advanced knowledge in green building as well as expertise in a particular LEED rating system. There are five different LEED AP specialties, and you must earn your LEED Green Associate prior to attempting a LEED AP with specialty.
