How to Be the Best Home Builder in Six (Free) Virtual Courses

Sign up for the next series of free Housing 2.0 online courses and learn everything you need to know about building better homes.

Lake City, Colo., Feb. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Take advantage of this free course opportunity to learn important aspects of the housing construction industry. 

Green Builder Media has joined forces with building industry luminary Sam Rashkin (former Chief Architect at the DOE and considered to be the father of EnergyStar) to offer Housing 2.0, a pioneering training and education program focused on disruption in the housing industry. In other words: He will teach you the best (only!) way to plan, design, finance, build, and market housing in response to the needs of today’s home buyers. 

The curriculum has been designed to teach builders how to implement 25 to 65 percent cost savings for every new home built, and how to navigate the intense challenges that are plaguing the sector (including labor shortages, material shortages, and skyrocketing material costs.) 

The program includes virtual workshops facilitated by Rashkin, online courses taught by industry experts, Action Groups that will enable participants to apply the Housing 2.0 fundamentals to their projects as well as access to Green Builder Media’s proprietary content, business recommendations, and market intelligence.

Did we mention that it’s free? Sign up for the next series of virtual classes, which starts February 9.

The six fast-paced workshops based on Sam’s new book, Housing 2.0: A Disruption Survival Guide provide a unique framework for consistently optimizing five key housing user experiences. This includes 19 strategies and 150 best practices that have been extensively vetted with hundreds of housing executives.
