Green Building Training
This site aims to provide a comprehensive listing of free and paid-for green building training, covering passive and active design and other elements of green building.
Green Building Councils around the world have played a leading role in creating a demand for green buildings. Green building professionals need to understand both the science and engineering aspects, but also be familiar with local codes and standards. For certification they need to understand their own national green building accreditation scheme, and possibly also LEED.
But green building knowledge isn’t only important for professionals working under certification schemes. Its value extends from home buyers wanting to build a sustainable house or home owners making their existing property greener, thorough to building services engineers, property developers and town planners.
