To ensure the integrity of the LEED Green Associate exam, you (or your parent or guardian if you are under 18) are required to review and accept a nondisclosure agreement that prohibits any disclosure of exam content:
a. Exam questions and answers are the exclusive property of GBCI
b. Exam questions and answers are protected by copyright law. The exam may not be copied or reproduced in part or in whole, by any means whatsoever, including memorization
c. Future discussion or disclosure of the content of the exam, orally or in writing, or by any other means, is prohibited
d. Theft or attempted theft of exam questions is punishable to the fullest extent of the law
e. Failure to comply with the agreement will result in forfeiture of your credential
Grounds for Dismissal
Any candidate who engages in misconduct or does not comply with the test proctor’s warning to discontinue inappropriate behavior may be dismissed from the testing environment (test center or online), have exam results invalidated or be subject to other sanctions. Fraud, deceit, dishonesty, or other irregular behavior in connection with taking the exam is strictly prohibited.
If you are dismissed from the testing environment, inform GBCI within ten (10) days of your exam date and provide a reason for your behavior. GBCI reviews all instances of dismissal from the testing environment and makes a ruling based on the consideration of your rationale and the Prometric report of the incident. To appeal a GBCI ruling, send an email of your formal appeal to GBCI. At this stage, the Credentialing Steering Committee will review and make a final ruling on your case.
