Courses, workshops and eLearning

The role the built environment plays in mitigating climate change is critical to achieving a sustainable future for current and future generations. Demand for educated professionals is on the rise, along with high quality, relevant professional development offerings.

The GBCA and its broad member base recognise the importance of effective training and development of professionals to ensure sustainable outcomes are both understood and achieved in meeting this important task. With this in mind, the GBCA has worked with industry to develop a professional development program that suits professionals at all levels in their career. Activities from the professional development program range from face-to-face courses, webinars and eLearning activities, and industry recognised professional qualifications.
