Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n8 p36-37 Nov-Dec 2010
The construction industry has long been a leader in predicting economic prosperity and in responding to customers' needs. In the last few years, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has managed to assemble the only ANSI-approved standards for green construction in the nation. During this time and with an eye toward the future, NAHB and its workforce development arm, the Home Builders Institute (HBI), have been assessing the growth opportunities of the industry and preparing for the demands of a green economy. Green construction is one aspect of the building sector that continues to gain steam. This article discusses how NAHB and NOCTI, formerly the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute and the leader in technical skill assessment, are working together to help create a pipeline of skilled green workers to meet the growing demand.
