“We’re very excited to begin this new relationship with the USGBC,” said Vince DiFrancesco, principal of Everblue. “It has been our mission from day one to provide high-quality, effective LEED training and to become a trusted leader in this industry.”
Everblue has a long history of being recognized by USGBC for its LEED training. Key accomplishments include multiple education partnerships with regional USGBC chapters and earning the “Fearless Leader” award at the 2013 USGBC North Carolina Green Gala Sustainable Business Awards.
In its efforts to support the Education Partner network, the USGBC will make sure that all partners have the resources, knowledge, and skills to provide best-in-class green building and sustainability education. It will highlight and promote its partners’ educational offerings to individuals looking to grow their green building knowledge or prepare for a LEED exam.
USGBC Education Partners receive several benefits, including access to the USGBC’s intellectual property, industry data, and marketplace analytics, as well as educational development resources, enabling them to create content that meets the demand of green education consumers. Education Partner courses will go through a streamlined continuing education approval process, and all attendee hours will be directly reported through an automated process.
Everblue’s role as an Education Partner will be to contribute best-in-class LEED training to the Education @USGBC subscription and offer courses for individual sale through the Education @USGBC platform.
Everblue is currently one of 49 Education Partners worldwide. The list includes regional USGBC chapters, consulting agencies, product manufacturers, and other training providers.
