resource dynamics/green building eDUCATION
Resource Dynamics / Green Building Education (RD/GBE) is dedicated to providing education, training, and consulting services to personnel in all segments of the construction industry, facilities management operations and maintenance, state or local code officials, and municipal zoning planning departments to promote the adoption of practices in our communities that are more sustainable, economically viable, and life enriching.
Our training programs are designed to offer real world, practical information with broader, big picture concepts about green practices and strategies, that will lighten the impact on the environment, save energy, and improve the health conditions of all building users and occupants. Our curriculums cover a full array of strategies, techniques, and tools needed to succeed in the green marketplace.
Our educational offerings focus on practical training that provide ideas and strategies you can use every day to improve your business or advance your personal career. These programs were developed to provide both theory “the why” and practical – “the how” knowledge for application into the lifestyle, home or workplace. All of our curriculums were developed utilizing focus sessions with prominent green professionals, researchers and activists all deeply committed to the survival of our planet. The curriculums are continually improved based on input from peer evaluations and by comments and suggestions from our trainees. New developments in energy savings, living environments and materials are evaluated before being introduced into our study guides. The members of our faculty contribute to the updates of the curriculum, with some members of our curriculum development team serving on various committees of the United States Green Building Council. All of our offerings are presented in understandable, down to earth language by experienced facilitators. Our trainings have a proven track record and give our attendees a ready knowledge base and a capacity to effect environmentally grounded solutions. Our courses are flexible so that content delivery can be tailored for your needs and can be presented in person or in web based formats.
