NAHB seeks green ‘field verifiers’

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has said it is seeking individuals to become “field verifiers” for its National Green Building Certification Program, launched at this year’s International Builders’ Show.

To qualify, individuals must participate in the Verifier Training administered by the NAHB Research Center and pass a verifier accreditation test. 

Training seminars will be offered at various locations around the country for a fee, the association said. However, a free training program will take place for registered attendees of the 2008 Concrete Technologies Tour, to be held June 1 to 3 in Charlotte, N.C. Tour attendees are invited to participate in the training Sunday, June 1. The training will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Hilton Charlotte University Place.  

The NAHB plans its National Green Builders Conference on May 11 to 13 in New Orleans. Check back at Home Channel News for information on this event.

Currently the National Association of Home Builders Research Center -- the sole green building certifying body -- is seeking interested, qualified individuals to become field verifiers for its National Green Building Certification Program.
