GBA Fall 2020 Workshop Series Offers Continuing-Ed Credit

Green Built Alliance has curated a workshop series to fulfill all six elective hours required by the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors, as well as being eligible for credit through the American Institute of Architects and certain other trade organizations.

With discounts for members and free equitable access tickets available to individuals who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or a person of color), the workshops will be held in mid-November prior to the Nov. 30 deadline for general contractors to complete their continuing education. These classes may also meet continuing-education criteria for architects as well as other trade organizations.

We will be hosting the two-hour mandatory course required for GCs in future years, but this year we are referring people to Environmental Solutions Group, which is providing the mandatory class as a standalone virtual offering at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9. The NC Builder Institute affiliated with the North Carolina Home Builders Association also is providing the mandatory course virtually numerous times in the coming weeks, with classes available on dates up to and including the deadline of Monday, Nov. 30.

We hope you’ll choose to fulfill your elective credits through Green Built Alliance. Please let us know what class topics you’re interested in us offering in the future, and feel free to reach out if you need support on other continuing-education requirements.
