In order to take a LEED specialty exam (BD+C, ID+C, O&M, Homes or ND), you will have to meet an important eligibility requirement:
You MUST have previous experience with a LEED registered project within three years of your application submittal date.
This must be documented in the form of a letter from a supervisor, client, or project manager, etc. and must describe your involvement on the LEED project.
For more information about eligibility requirements, please take a look at the O+M exam candidate handbook, which can be found on the GBCI website.
