Interactive online tool for LEED professional credential holders

The CMP Wizard is an interactive online tool intended to help LEED Professionals understand their Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) requirements and explore continuing education options

02/18/2011


The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) launched the CMP Wizard, an interactive online tool to help LEED Professionals understand their Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) requirements and explore continuing education options.

The maintenance requirements for the LEED AP and LEED Green Associate credentials ensure that credential holders stay current with the quickly evolving body of knowledge around green building. Credential maintenance also enables professionals to grow their skills and show clients and employers that their expertise is meaningful in a rapidly transforming marketplace. The CMP Wizard helps LEED credential holders select from among the wide variety of options they have for earning credential maintenance credit.

GBCI’s credential maintenance program offers eight flexible options for earning hours that range from working on LEED projects to reading case studies to taking professional development courses. LEED Professionals can often earn hours while performing activities they are already doing for their jobs.

LEED APs looking to take advantage of the limited-time opportunity to enroll into the specialty credential will find relevant information on prescriptive CMP requirements and testing options in the CMP Wizard. The enrollment windows for LEED APs without specialty close this year beginning in August.
