Certified Green Designer™



The Green Designer certification is a specialized and tailored educational program developed to bring comprehensive and reliable information to the professional with any construction background – from architecture and interior design, to the electrical and plumbing trades, or any other aspect of the construction field. You’ll learn how to apply green design principles and green practices to any project. 

 

Consumers are becoming more aware of the environmental issues affecting their homes, businesses, and lifestyles, and are more than ever asking designers, architects, and builders to incorporate sustainability into their projects.

 

Our green certification gives you the background and resources you need to evaluate green products, green interior design and finishes with the entire home’s or business’ “environment” in mind, allowing the design professional to make careful selection of healthy and environmentally responsible materials and products. BecomingGreen®, Inc. offers green training with green building strategies to improve energy efficiency and optimize the utilization of resources.
