Built Green Canada believes training is essential. One of the requirements for BUILT GREEN® membership is that training is taken every two years. All builder and renovator members must be trained in BUILT GREEN® practices, policies, and procedures prior to building their BUILT GREEN® projects. Contracted trades and/or suppliers are also encouraged to take our training, as are non-members interested in our programs.
