An eight-week course on the Fundamentals of Green Building will be held at Haywood Community College starting Aug. 30.
The course is designed to help construction workers and contractors land work in the emerging green construction industry. The course is offered through the JobsNOW Program and a grant from the NC Rural Economic Development Center.
The course has a classroom component that covers theories, practices, and materials used in green building, plus a Boots-on-the-Ground component at a model green home being built on the HCC campus.
For fulltime students, HCC offers a degree in Low Impact Development and a Green Building certificate.
