Allied Schools was awarded the designation "USGBC Education Provider" on select green courses, giving it the specialized distinction of providing a high-quality green building education that has been peer reviewed and approved by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Meeting high standards and providing an education that will help professionals achieve or maintain their green building credentials, Allied's green courses were approved and added to the USGBC's online Catalog of Courses. Courses with the "USGBC Education Provider" designation provide today's professionals with access to timely and credible green building education options. Allied's approved courses include:

- Green Building Practices
- Home Energy Survey Professional
- Introduction to Photovoltaic Systems
- Advanced Principles of Photovoltaic Systems Installation

According to the U.S. Green Building Council, Education Provider courses support the LEED Professional Credentialing Maintenance Program; are preeminent in green building education and align with USGBC's educational mission; are delivered in a variety of formats and target multiple learning levels and audiences; and are peer reviewed to meet USGBC's high standard for instructional design and content quality.

"We are honored to have achieved the 'USGBC Education Provider' designation for our green building courses," said George Achenbach. "We continually strive to be a high-quality green education provider and this designation exemplifies our dedication to industry professionals nationwide. We look forward to partnering with these professionals and helping them attain new heights in their careers."

The 100% online format enables professionals to further their green building training while maintaining their careers - courses are accessible 24/7, with live student support available during regular business hours.

Additionally, students who enroll in any of Allied's green courses will receive the Green Career Pathway online resources at no additional cost. The resources, which are accessible when they log onto their course, are designed to assist with their job search once they complete their career training. The benefits include access to job leads, green industry news, professional associations, career tips and techniques, and more.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to a prosperous and sustainable future for our nation through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings. USGBC works toward its mission of market transformation through its LEED green building certification program, robust educational offerings, a nationwide network of chapters and affiliates, the annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, and advocacy in support of public policy that encourages and enables green buildings and communities.


 

Are you considering online education? Smart choice. In a U.S. Department of Education report, research studies from 1996 to 2008 that addressed the effectiveness of online education were analyzed using 51 factors that can influence learning efficacy. The report, titled the Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning - A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies, revealed findings such as:

- Online education is more effective than face-to-face learning.

- Face-to-face learning alone is the least effective method among three types studied.


According to the report, adding video and online quizzes or other forms of interactive learning aides may be appealing, but they may not fully increase educational efficacy. Instead, it's the time spent on learning combined with the additional communication opportunities that online delivery affords that make online education an effective learning choice.
