Green Build Academy scholarships are now available for the first 200 students to complete courses in Building Science Basics or Going Solar.  These scholarships cover 70% to 80% of the course enrollment fee for residents in San Diego and Orange Counties who receive their electric service from SDG&E.

This training is offered through Conservation Services Group, a non-profit organization that provides training and energy-efficiency program implementation services in fourteen states.  We were recently awarded a grant to enable 200 participants to take our on-line courses in Building Science and Going Solar for only $15 per course.

Courses can be taken anytime, day or night, in the months of November and December and can be paused and completed in one session or several sessions. 

Interested candidates may learn more about the courses and enroll at https://greenbuildacademy.org

After enrolling, they will be provided a link for payment and access to the e-Learning course of their choice.  Students who complete the course with a passing grade of 70% or higher will receive a certificate of completion and are eligible for 1.5 to 2.5 Building Performance Institute (BPI) CEUs.  The program ends December 31st, or when all scholarships for discounted tuition have been awarded.

This is a great opportunity for workforce training in green building and residential solar concepts, and introductory preparation for the jobs of the future.

 


Green Build Academy San Diego is funded by California utility customers and administered by San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E®) under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission, through a contract awarded to Conservation Services Group. California customers who choose to participate in this program are not obligated to purchase any additional services offered by the contractor.
