If you register through the Green Advantage website for a GA credential, if you currently hold a GA credential or if you are a former GA credential holder, you now have a dashboard! Your password-protected dashboard includes the following user-friendly features:
Profile Info: If you are a current credential holder, your public profile information can showcase your photo, bio and green project information. You can also connect your public directory information to your Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn pages and more! You can ensure that the information displayed in the public profile – the Green Advantage Directory – as well as the non-public contact information – is up-to-date and accurate.
Credentials: You can easily see which credentials you hold and their expiration dates. You can also print your certificate.
Credential Maintenance Program (CMP): If your GACA or GACP certification has not lapsed and you’d prefer not to renew your certification by taking and passing the most current certification exam, there is now another alternative.
The International Green Builder Certification Board has approved a CMP that provides renewal by taking approved courses. This is a user-friendly option for staying up-to-date with green building while maintaining your certification.
Click here for more information about the CMP. The Certification Renewal for certifications that have not lapsed is $125 until March 31, 2020, and will increase to $200 April 1, 2020. Click here to see the Fee Schedule.
Reinstatement: Have you let your GACA or GACP certification lapse and would prefer not to renew by taking and passing the most current certification exam? The International Green Builder Certification Board has approved another option for reinstatement. By taking approved green building courses there is an alternative path that may meet your needs.
Note that the Reinstatement Fee is waived until March 31, 2020. So the cost of reinstatement is payment of $175 for the Certification Renewal Fee. However, on April 1, 2020 a $200 Reinstatement Fee will go into effect; this is in addition to a Certification Renewal Fee for lapsed certifications of $250.
