Partnerships & Licensing

Real estate, design, and construction industry professionals are finding it increasingly necessary to gain the knowledge and skills to design, build, market and/or valuate green homes and upgrades.

Given the projected growth of the green home market, there is a tremendous opportunity for education providers to be at the forefront of preparing industry professionals for this market growth. However, developing curriculum and establishing a sustained and successful presence in the market is typically a long, expensive process. 

Education providers now have the opportunity to license three highly regarded professional designation courses from Earth Advantage for delivery in their own markets:

Earth Advantage Broker
Accredited Green Appraiser
