How To Report an Education Activity for LEED Credential Maintenance (CMP) Hours

LEED Credential Maintenance (CMP) Reporting Instructions for Education Activities

Participation in the LEED Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) is required for accredited LEED Green Associate and LEED AP+ professionals. One way to fulfill the renewal requirements is to participate in education activities, such as live or online courses. Once you complete these activities, you may need to report the hours to USGBC if the education provider does not automatically do so. Below are the instructions for reporting your LEED CMP education hours to USGBC.

Note: You have 90 days from the end of your reporting period to submit your hours to USGBC for approval & to renew your credential.
