Best Green Building Courses
The rising popularity of sustainable and green building means that superior green building teams are busy, and that's good news! However, the fast-paced nature of the industry means that your team members may be too busy to attend the training courses they need in order to be the best that they can be. Your employees may find it hard to access conventional courses, due to their hectic work schedules. However, there is another option: some of the best green building courses can be customized to fit your situation. Custom instruction in green building can be accessed from the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), the premier organization promoting sustainable building in Canada.
What benefits can this custom, private education bring? Classes are tailored specifically for your organization and can therefore provide added value to a standard class curriculum.
For example, newer team members may find themselves too busy to attend regular courses to obtain LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) accreditation, which is crucial to your operation. In-house LEED instruction can be targeted especially to these employees, from the Green Associate level on up. The hours can be scheduled at times that are convenient for you, and instruction can take place at your offices, requiring no travel time or additional costs. Some organizations find it helpful to include more experienced team members in these sessions to ensure that everyone has the most up-to-date information. LEED accreditation for your workers helps improve every aspect of your operation, and adds professional credibility.
The CaGBC offers several different types of courses, and a variety of delivery methods. Perhaps a seminar on a specific aspect of sustainable building would be of particular benefit to your personnel because it pertains to a current or future project. It is usually more cost-effective to bring a targeted presentation to your office than to send participants out for education, and with this option you control the timing of the education. Or it may be that your team members need a wide variety of short courses in different areas. These may be best delivered via webinar or other e-learning methods that each employee can access in his or her own home.
Smart Managers Focus on Training
Making training a priority for your team can have huge benefits to the efficiency and credibility of your organization, and accessing customized training options can make your job as a manager much simpler. Premium green builders take time to forge a relationship with the Canada Green Building Council. The CaGBC offers a variety of programs to educate industry professionals as well getting out information to the public about building green homes, buildings, and neighbourhoods.
As well as LEED training and a wide variety of short courses, including a popular workshop centering on the Living Building Challenge, the Canada Green Building Council offers a five-month Sustainable Building Advisor (SBA) course that leads to earning the designation of Certified Sustainable Building Advisor. The CaGBC also holds a national conference annually, that includes the latest in green building trends, industry developments and the most diverse selection of continuing education options.
