Does anyone know of the recognition of IGBC Leed Accredition?
Is it worth or a LEED AP from USGBC only makes sense?

Is there a significant difference between the AP exams conducted in India and USA?

The LEED AP exams are yet to be started in India by IGBC.
The major difference between IGBC and USGBC is that unike the latter, IGBC focuses a lot on water conservation, apart from energy conservation. The rating system is more or less the same.
Actually bro, two guys from JLL have already got IGBC LEED Accredition last year in India.
Let me ask those fools.
Hmm..Actually 4. subramanya Hande being one of them. here is the list of all LEED AP in India. http://www.igbc.in:9080/site/igbc/leedapmember.jsp?event=22869 but there is no link for the test on the website. Even there FAQ section doesn't work.
Right. The list is small and growing.

Hey, Does anyone have any idea as to how one can register as a LEED-AP with IGBC?
Actually I am a LEED-AP but registered with USGBC...and I plan to come back and practice out there and thus wanted to register as a LEED-AP with IGBC.
Would appreciate any help or guidance!!
This is a very interesting discussion. There seem to be a lot of LEED APs in India now. I do not think IGBC is doing any exams, they are just registering and providing administrative guidance to LEED projects.

I saw a green conference in hyderabad mentioned on the calendar at a site (www.leedexcel.com) that I am a member of. Anyone from this group planning to attend?

My thoughts:

 

While IGBC has been conducting exams for a while now (5th and 19th of every month if i am not mistaken) - the exams are relatively simpler and only require that you know the intent of the credits. 100% pass percentage if I am not mistaken- or so I hear.

 

A review for recent project submitted to IGBC under the IGBC rating system ( Factory to be precise), mentioned the need to submit the certificate for IGBC AP and did not accept the LEED AP certificate submitted. While LEED AP certificate works just fine for LEED rating system( NC v1), it does not any longer work for IGBC rating systems.

 

Its probably a good idea to become IGBC AP. My intuition tells me, IGBC would break away from USGBC (it costs a whole bunch of money to use the word LEED) , now that it has found its initial footing.
