The U.S. Green Building Council has issued an ongoing call for USGBC members interested in joining the team that provides peer review of the courses and content that make up the Education Provider Program. Green building subject matter experts and educators are sought for this team.
Given the exponential growth in the green building market, there is a proportionate demand for top-quality education opportunities to support that growth. USGBC facilitates access to this education through Greenbuild365 (www.greenbuild365.org), a new online education portal, which includes a catalog of courses offered by USGBC and education providers. In addition to courses, the program has launched a review process for conferences and one-time events, along with a new fee structure.
Professionals seeking to go beyond LEED and enrich their knowledge of green building theories, techniques, and business trends want to know that the content is accurate, timely, and worth their time—and reviewers provide this important oversight.
Not only do reviewers add value to the program, they also receive benefits that enhance their own professional expertise. They are trained in the basics of adult education, the review process, and criteria, and this training can be used to enhance their own courses. In addition, reviewers are eligible for a free review of one of their own courses annually after completing 12 course reviews. A current list of reviewers is listed on the program’s web page.
