Welcome to Green Builder College An educational program by and for green building professionals.
The construction industry is changing, more rapidly than it has in many years. Stricter building codes, new producst and consumer awareness of "green" buildings and products have opened new doors--but only to those with the skills and understanding to step through those doors. Why be left on the threshhold?
Green Builder College, an affordable, online series of study guides, videos and seminars, offers you the ability to keep pace with changes in building science, codes, certification and other knowledge specific to home construction and renovation. This flexible program takes you through complex topics and systems in an easy-to-follow format, augmenting the information you may already have about Green rating programs. But Green Builder College is not aligned with LEED, the NAHB, or any other particular certifying entity. That means green business owners: home builders, general contractors, trades and their employees, can learn the science behind high-performance, resource-efficient construction in a neutral, classroom-like environment. It's time to be the first in your field, the best green expert in your region. And Green Builder College can help make that happen.
