Whether you are a seasoned green building professional or looking to work in an exciting and growing field, the CaGBC’s Sustainable Building Advisor (SBA) program will open up new opportunities for you. The nine-month certification course requires no existing green building education or experience and is focused on practical, forward-thinking ways to design, construct and manage buildings that are resource efficient, environmentally responsible, cost effective, and healthy for all occupants.
“I highly recommend this program to anyone who is considering getting involved in the sustainability field. The curriculum is excellent offering a breadth of understanding which opens our eyes to the many different components of sustainability that you normally would not get in any one particular job.”
Michael Parker, Senior Manager, Energy and Environment, TD Bank Group
The program content is delivered via a combination of presentations by Canadian expert instructors and guest speakers, team projects, site visits to exemplary local projects, and access to the latest in green building resources. This nine-month intensive program provides a unique opportunity to analyze and solve problems in real time while being delivered in a format that allows students to also maintain a full-time job.
Upon completion of the SBA program and CSBA Exam, students earn the designation of Certified Sustainable Building Advisor (CSBA), while at the same time achieving all credential maintenance requirements for LEED-accredited professionals. Perhaps best of all, you will become a part of a local community and professional network of green building professionals with similar goals and ideals.
“As the owner and operator of a successful renovation business I really appreciate the overall structure of the program. It allows me to balance my company responsibilities with my professional development goals and earn valuable accreditation without risking any client commitments.” - Brad Bates, Owner, Bates Renos.
