Courses with the GBCI CMP logo have been reviewed and approved by GBCI as professional development hours for the LEED
Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) as general hours. Every two years, LEED Green Associates must complete 15 CE hours (12 general and 3 LEED Specific), and LEED APs with Specialty must complete 30 CE hours (24 general and 6 LEED Specific). GreenCE also offers LEED Specific courses and complete CMP Packages.

LEED Professionals must self-report their hours through the Green Building Certification Institute website. For more information on the CMP and a step-by-step guide to reporting your CMP activity, see the CMP Guide.

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR LEED PROFESSIONALS: We will soon begin reporting LEED GBCI CE credits on your behalf. In order to ensure reporting, you will need to update your GreenCE account with your GBCI ID and verify that the email address matches the email used for your GBCI account.
Step 1: Login to your account and select VIEW/EDIT ACCOUNT. Add your GBCI member number and SAVE.
Step 2: If the email address for your GreenCE account needs to be changed, contact us at and indicate what your email address should be.
