Industry professionals are finding it increasingly necessary to gain the knowledge and skills to design, build, market and valuate high performance homes and upgrades.

Given the recent growth of the green/energy efficient homes market, there is a tremendous opportunity for education providers to train real estate and building industry professionals on these topics. However, developing effective curriculum and establishing a sustained and successful presence in the market is typically a time intensive, expensive process. 

Over the past 10 years, Earth Advantage has trained over 10,000 professionals across the country on high performance home features, benefits and emerging trends. We have been at the forefront of developing and delivering innovative training, accreditation, and engagement opportunities for real estate agents, appraisers, energy score assessors, builders, contractors, architects, code officials, and home inspectors.

Earth Advantage has the proven capacity to develop and deliver courses from start to finish, including: needs assessment, curriculum development, accreditation, marketing, course registration, course delivery, and course or project evaluation. Courses are developed and delivered using a combination of in-house experts and outside contractors, when needed. 

I've worked with Earth Advantage for 2 years on a grant from the State of Alabama and the US Department of Energy. Our mutual goal was to develop and deliver curriculum that would give local REALTORs and appraisers the skills and knowledge they needed to take advantage of a growing green building industry. Our work with Earth Advantage has been nothing short of spectacular! The classes were so successful that we ended up getting another grant from the State to continue teaching them in other areas. We heard time and time again that these were the best classes the participants had ever taken.
Thanks to Earth Advantage for such great work!
