Enter the Green Workforce

Tue, 2011-12-20 11:28

If ever there was a time in which people were searching for self-improvement, it’s now. Americans spend more than $11 billion each year on self-improvement products and services. With unemployment numbers around 9 percent, individuals are realizing that they need to set themselves apart from the competition and get job training.

Some individuals are looking to the sustainability and green building industries as their way out of unemployment. Sometimes switching careers is the best thing to do, since former industries have been permanently outsourced.

So you’ve decided to enter into the green workforce. You’re thinking of getting an industry credential. You understand that designations and certifications give you specialized knowledge and boost your credibility. You may not have accounted for the expense of continuing education before, but now that you are planning to go that route, you need to weigh your options and make sure you are getting the most for your training.

Some things you may want to consider before choosing a program: Is the program from an accredited school? Is the company you’re considering an education provider or training affiliate for the industry’s standard-bearing organizations (USGBC, BPI, RESNET)? What do online reviews from former students say about the program?
