Green Built Alliance has curated a variety of course options that will fulfill the six elective hours required annually 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), workshops will be held throughout the year leading up 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 professional groups.
See below for our most recent schedule for the second quarter of 2021. From April through June, we will be offering virtual afternoon classes via Zoom on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. The current class cost per credit hour is $20 for nonmembers, $15 for members and $10 for students or seniors.
