The Sustainable Building Advisor (SBA) program teaches you how to apply the fundamental principles of sustainability.
The course offers a hands-on approach to sustainability training that challenges students to recognize and understand problems, identify opportunities, and craft innovative solutions in the built environment. Scope includes global, regional, municipal, commercial, and residential perspectives.
Course participants learn and apply best practices in sustainability sciences, moving beyond the LEED scoring framework towards a holistic approach to sustainability for the designed environment.
The SBA program is recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as a 400-level “mastery” course in sustainability.
