Title: LEED Certified

There is also an alternative to LEED that has been developed called Green Globes (see It is my understanding that they will also be offering certification soon, which will provide competition for LEED. That should help keep the costs down and lead to improvements for both systems.

Is anyone on the list LEED certified? Is LEED certification for a
structural engineer specific, or is it a general certification, same for
architect, mechanical, etc.? Would a structural engineer take a
different test from say an architect? Is the US Green Building Council
the only group that officially certifies LEED designers, or are there
others. If you are LEED certified, was it done under 1.0 or 2.0? Does
it make a difference regarding your certification? Is there continuing
education requirements for maintaining LEED certification? How
difficult was the exam?
I've been to the USGBC web site but their information on designer
certification is rather vague. =20
