Sustainable Building Practices (CTSBP)

This program is being discontinued. Students currently enrolled need to complete it by the end of the Spring/Summer 2023 semester.

Academic Requirements


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.
