More than 1000 builders, remodelers, and other members of the home building industry have earned the Certified Green Professional (CGP) educational designation since it was introduced early this year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Home owners and home buyers can visit the NAHB Web site state-by-state list at www.nahb.org/builderremodelerdirectory and click on CGP to find a professional with that designation.

Certified Green Professionals must complete 24 hours of classroom training, including 16 hours of green building instruction; must have two years' industry experience, must sign a code of ethics, and must commit to fulfilling continuing education requirements to qualify for the designation.

Most classes are available through state and local home building industry associations, NAHB conferences and other events. In fact, 53 "Green Building for Building Professionals" two-day classes are already scheduled for the next eight months, with more classes added weekly.

The educational designation is an important part of the new NAHB National Green Building Program, introduced in February. The program for residential construction also includes an online home scoring tool at www.nahbgreen.org.
