Sustainable Building Practices (CTSBP)
In this program, students will be introduced to the theory of building sustainability. Through review of the history of the green movement, students will develop an understanding of why it has become a critical part of our way of life. Following an overview of the impact of non-sustainable practices on the planet, students will be introduced to both clean energy practices and the Building Performance Institute's requirement for procedures used in building weatherization. Students will apply theory and skills to projects in the lab and off-site environments.
Students must have an Academic Math Level of 3.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
