Reapplying After Initial Application Expires
Once you apply for a LEED exam at the My Credentials Web site, you have one year to take and pass the LEED exam. If you take an exam and do not pass on your first attempt, you are allowed two more attempts within the year following your initial application to achieve a passing score. If you still have not passed the test, your application ceases to be valid.
You may sign up for a new application, following the same procedures as for the original, but there is a three-month blackout period after the previous application expires before you may make a new application. Just as before, the application process will require that you document your eligible participation in a project that was registered for LEED certification. This experience must fall within the same eligibility period as before—that is, it must have occurred within three years prior to the application. This means that it is possible that the experience that qualified you for your initial LEED application will have expired by the time you reapply. As before, the evidence for your experience must be properly documented and is subject to random auditing for verification.
