Our catalog is constantly changing, but that’s a good thing! On August 17, 2018, we will retire three Advanced Career Training courses due to outdated content.
Read below about how you can supplement the following to-be-discontinued courses:
- Principles of Green Buildings (GES711)
Students looking to start a career in building and sustainability can enroll in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) (GES784).

This credential, certified by the US Green Building Council, ranked #106 on the Burning Glass list of top certifications.
- Performing Comprehensive Building Assessments (GES712)
Students looking to start a career in building assessment would benefit from learning inspection principles and standards of practice in the Home Inspection Certificate (GES704) course.
