Promoting the LEED green building system.
Isn't anyone else cramming to get in under the 2.2 deadline?|
I sure wish I could toss around EA with some folks!
I'm a grad student in urban & regional planning and have been considering whether or not to push to get accredited under the current rules or to wait until the new rules kick in. Any thoughts on which might be best? Or does it really matter?

OMG, it totally matters! I know I sound dramatic, but it IS dramatic. I'm working off memory here, but what I understand is:
The pass rate for 2.2 is about 30%.The expected pass rate for 3.0 will be 20%.
2.2 requires ONE test to become an AP. The entire process changes under 3.0, requiring two tests, and having levels of certification below AP.
The final deadline to sign up for 2.2 is March 31 but you can schedule the test out as far as June.
Locally, I've found two free classes geared towards helping to get people passed.
The new rules will be much more difficult.
Anything above applies to NC. I don't know much about the others.
Murphy's Law struck and I have a giant deliverable next Friday, so my cramming for 2.2 has now been pushed back to on the plane on my way to/from my vacation the following week. I hope to sit the test at least once before the end of the month so that if I don't pass I can still reschedule. Guess I better go reserve a seat at the testing center.
We had a study group at my office last fall, but I need to get it all cycled back up into active memory before I try it.

Ditto. That's why I signed up for 3-26. If I flunk, I can reschedule for the 2.2!
I'm probably going to sign up for it. I just wish I didn't have to pay $400 to do it.
