Join the Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) program and learn cutting edge building best practices from our expert instructor, Stephen Aiguier of Green Hammer, as he guides participants through the entire spectrum of high performance building best practices and shares practical insights on the following:

  • Building science fundamentals & moisture management
  • High performance wall & roof assemblies
  • HVAC product selection & integrated system design
  • Water conservation techniques
  • Indoor air quality, green material considerations & health impacts
  • Local green/energy efficiency building programs & incentives

SHP is a comprehensive, interactive, experience-driven education program for residential and multifamily building and design professionals looking to take their work to the next level of quality. Each of the six monthly SHP modules can be taken individually and each module provides participants with an opportunity to gain valuable insights and eliminate common barriers to high performance building via under-construction home tours, expert guest speakers, and a cumulative final project that puts principles into practice. Participants that complete all six modules can earn the designation of an accredited Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP). Learn more >>
