New Green Building Course Part of CGB Designation
National Designation Month
Green Building for Building Professionals is a new course being offered as part of the Certified Graduate Builder (CGB) designation that gives builders the knowledge to incorporate green building principles in their operations, as well as how to provide value to their consumers.
Green Building for Building Professionals, a two-day course, will be offered for the first time on March 11-12 in Albuquerque, N.M. just prior to the 2006 NAHB National Green Building Conference. The conference will be held March 12-14.
The course offers in-depth discussions on strategies for incorporating green building principles into homes — without driving up the cost of construction. It also will include information on how builders can provide buyers with lower energy and maintenance costs, improved indoor air quality and long-term value.
Techniques for competitively differentiating home products with increased indoor environment quality will also be covered.
Chuck Miller, CGB, GMB, of Chuck Miller Construction in Hidden Springs, Idaho, believes his CGB designation not only helped to sharpen his business management skills, it gave him an edge over his competition.
“My designations give me credibility in the marketplace,” Miller said. “I feel the CGB is a very good background for anyone in the home building business. It also provides you with great networking opportunities.”
Both the course and Green Building Conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque. Special conference hotel rates are available.
