Improving Knowledge and Skills

Building knowledge and skills are the core of what is traditionally viewed as workforce development. This includes learning that happens in the traditional education system (K-12, community colleges, colleges and universities), as well as vocational and technical training, on-the-job learning and apprenticeship models, and continuing education.

In the green building space, workforce stakeholders may be developing and delivering training and education, incorporating new energy-related concepts and technologies into existing related training, or simply connecting workers or potential workers to training and education.
