Getting that Green

This site has a really nice state by state listing of the certifications you can get. National Programs are listed too, and there’s a nice resources page behind the scenes too. I’m getting ready to publish a spreadsheet to the Solarious site which contains the contact information for photovoltaic training sites around the US. The LEED-NC exam has a great training site which has insight into that test should you be considering it or in going for the certification for your building project. Armed with only these tools, you could be on your way to a green career today!
