To date, this course and its materials have proven to be instrumental in helping over 8000 students pass their respective exam at a 100% pass rate. This course is offered at a quarter of the price and time as the competition and is geared at allowing students to graduate with letters after their name!

This course meets the exam’s eligibility requirements and the USGBC charges a $100 (reduced for students) fee for the actual exam which can be taken at any time at your nearest Prometric center. Save money by reserving your spot today and make a positive difference in your career!

If you are worried about your busy schedule or distance from the course location, fear not, as the workshop is entirely recorded and you can watch the part that you cannot attend or take the whole course online.

This professional designation never expires and you will never have to retest if you pass now!
