…I’ve been working in sustainability and green building for a decade, and I’m glad I finally took the steps to get my LEED GA certification. I thought the class was great, although I have to say that one day I was distracted while working at home with a sick child. My practice tests were looking like 66% / 67% right after the course (without reading the book), then 73% / 74% after reading the book. I took a few more USGBC practice exams and got my score to 79% / 81%, but still wasn’t feeling confident when I walked in to the test. I thought about postponing it a few days before, but it was too late.
I’m happy to report that I took the test yesterday and I passed! I got a 192, which actually kind of shocked me. I have to say that what helped during the actual exam was being able to flag questions and come back to them, plus taking the full two hours instead of rushing through…
Thank you again for your help…

Just wanted to let you know I passed my exam! The course content and the practice tests were super helpful. I have to say your tip of using the practice tests as a study guide was great. Also, my own tip is that when I found I wasn’t improving fast enough on a section, I just sat down and answered every single question on that section within the practice tests. That really helped boost my score. I did indeed see the question about what “MERV” stands for, as well as several of the practice test questions almost verbatim.

SIG has been amazing in giving me the tools, education AND attention in training me for the LEED Green Associate exam. I couldn’t have asked for a better tool for learning and studying for this test. I look forward to working with them on continuing my education on all things LEED!

We’re in a highly competitive, rapidly changing industry, so if we don’t stay relevant we’ll fall behind very quickly. Thank you again for educating us and helping prepare us for the exam! Both of you were friendly, very well spoken, presented the material clearly and really seemed interested in our questions and opinions. We’re fortunate to have the SIG team as an invaluable resource.

Beka & Monica,
Thank you so much for taking such good care of us.
Our class yesterday was much better than anything I had taken in the past.
I’m bummed I didn’t get to work with all of you on the 73 Tremont LEED project, but I do hope we can work together on another project soon.
Thanks again I was able to access the flash cards and I’m in the process of printing them out.
Have a wonderful afternoon!

I took a LEED GA prep class from Jason in the spring at Oregon State and it was fantastic. I passed my GA exam and am really interested in taking my BD+C. I found that the best preparation for me was the six practice tests I was able to take… I aced the [Green Associate] test because of you guys.

I hope all is well. Better late than never. I took the LEED Green Associate test this past Saturday and passed. I would like to pursue LEED AP O+M. Do you offer classes for this? What are my next steps?

Many thanks for all of your help in preparing for the LEED AP O&M Exam. I could not have done it without your help in answering questions, and providing insights, not to mention the study material. Wanted to let you know that I took the exam today…………………………… and passed it!
Hope to meet you whenever you are in the DC Metro area!

Thank you for taking the time to review the exam material with us. There were several things that you covered which gave me clarity. I took all the test exams and found them to be very tough. I’ve had to take them at least twice to reach the minimum 80%. I hope the actual exam pulls from these 700 questions, or it will really challenge me. I find the questions tricky.
Thanks again for giving us an edge.

I just wanted to let you know that myself as well as John Denbo and Andy VanWaadenburg all passed the LEED Green Associate exam on 7-31. I know that we all feel that this accomplishment is in large part due to all the resources that were available to us through Sustainable Investment Group.
We are now ready to take on the next challenge and work toward our goal of receiving the LEED AP accreditation. Can you let us know what you can help us with along the way? Do you offer a seminar similar to the one you presented to us for the LEED Green Associate seminar? I believe that you mentioned you could help us to gain the required job experience that we need in order to test for the LEED AP accreditation. We actually do have a job starting very soon that will be shooting for a LEED Silver certification, however neither John nor myself will be part of the team on that job.
Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you, Gary

Thanks to Jason Kiefer, LEED AP, BD+C, ID+C, O+M, Homes & Principal at SIG, – our LEED Green Associate Exam Prep Class went exactly as planned and the efficiency in which Kiefer’s presentation aligned himself and the USGBC with the intent on delivering Green Building, LEED Fundamentals and the Green Associate Course with a style all his own. Great Job Jason……
