CaGBC launches custom-designed education services to help Canadian businesses succeed in the low-carbon economy

The Canada Green Building Council’s Education group is adding custom-designed programs to its already robust education and training offerings. Designed to help companies thrive in the new low-carbon economy, these customized programs are built around specific business needs, and draw on CaGBC’s 15 years of experience training green building professionals and supporting LEED and Zero Carbon standard development.

Market Transformation Brings Opportunity

For companies involved in the design, construction, and operation of highly-efficient buildings, the transition to a low-carbon economy represents a significant business opportunity. To ensure Canadian firms are ready for both the opportunity and the challenges this transition represents, it’s critical they retool their employees’ skill sets.

In this new economy, organizations must become more responsive to the changing market through the implementation of the latest green building technologies and standards. As the number-one source for industry-specific education, the CaGBC Education team is well placed to help companies anticipate and train for the skills of the future.

A customized approach to education & training

CaGBC starts with a needs analysis to fully understand the business requirements and the skill sets staff require to transition to the low-carbon economy. Once the required skills are known, the CaGBC Education team will identify gaps and create a custom program to address them.

Curriculum delivery is also customized, with a focus on in-person sessions led by industry experts. These interactive sessions will rely on problem-solving and real-world situations to keep participants engaged. Companies using these custom education services will benefit from CaGBC’s market research, insights from CaGBC’s industry connections, and localized case studies.
