Training with Built Green Canada
We believe training is essential. All builder and renovator members must be trained in BUILT GREEN® practices, policies, and procedures prior to building their BUILT GREEN® projects. Contracted trades and/or suppliers are also encouraged to take our training, as our non-members interested in our programs.

One of the requirements for BUILT GREEN® membership is that training is taken every two years. We strongly recommend building science training as a natural progression and to encourage continued education, points may be earned on our checklist for doing so. Built Green Canada recognizes Building Science for New Homes training available through Service Organizations licensed through Natural Resources Canada; however, when accessibility is a challenge, there are other options.
