Sustainable Building Solutions Continuing Education Courses

ASSA ABLOY offers continuing education courses that cover doorway-related sustainable building solutions. Contact us to schedule a course for your company/organization.

Sustainable building practices are the new norm in the construction industry. This growing acceptance of green building standards has led to greater use of building products that minimize the impact on the environment. Many construction professionals are untrained in how door and hardware products can help meet these tough standards. ASSA ABLOY is ready to fill this knowledge void by offering a set of doorway/sustainability-related courses approved for Continuing Education (CE) credits by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Third-party USGBC Education Provider, such as ASSA ABLOY, can conduct courses which have been approved by USGBC to count for GBCI CE Hours toward the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) Credential Maintenance Program. By participating in an ASSA ABLOY course, green building professionals will be able to learn about sustainable doorway solutions and earn credits toward their GBCI accreditation.
