  • Yes, we need more information about LEED projects and LEED engineers. My wife and I both passed LEED this year. Now your cannot sit for NC 2.2 any more. The company that helped me to pass was www.leedexcel.com and I understand they have a LEED Green Associate (LEED GA) practice exam as well. They also list green job opportunities on site. We need more such opportunities.
