The new specialty exams include: Building Design and Construction (the old NC), Interior Design and Construction (the old CI), Operations and Maintenance (the old EBOM), Homes, and Neighborhood Development.

    42. 42. Maintaining Your LEED AP Credential<br />All LEED APs must earn 30 hours (minimum of 6 must be LEED-specific) of continuing education (CE) during the 2-year period following the date they are awarded their credential.<br />CE must be related to green building, green technology and/or LEED.<br />Requirements are prescriptivefor all LEED Green Associates and LEED APs. <br />

    49. 49. Maintaining Your LEED AP Credential <br />LEED APs who have more than one specialty must maintain each of them. <br />One will be designated as the primary specialty; all others will be secondary specialty(ies).<br />LEED APs who passed more than one of the “old” exams (NC, CI or EBOM) must complete hours of CE for each specialty; 6 of these hours must be LEED-specific for each specialty.<br />
