Building Biology New-Build Consultant (BBNC)
We provide the only program in North America that requires our certificants to complete a rigorous 104 hours of hands-on in-person experiential training, followed by three proctored final exams and a mentored Final Project, before we cerify them as expert consultants. Additionally, they are required to complete successfully 40 hours of our mentored correspondence course. Only then do we approve them to go into the field and serve both the general public and businesses. Building Biology is a comprehensive science for which there is no fast-track to mastering the discipline.
This program will equip you with the comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the vitally unique Building Biology-based, state-of-the-art, scientific methods and practices for designing, building/renovating, and equipping (furnishings and finishes) a dwelling for living and/or working that supports human health and wellness. Your learning will include protocols for vetting materials that convey into a completed structure toxic contributors that adversely affect (due to their manufacturing methods and content) human health, and for identifying and specifying construction processes that do not implement nor exacerbate such harmful threats and effects upon the structure's occupants. This program also examines the potential and value of Building Biology principles on the larger community/city planning level.

Your professional certification studies will be comprised of one 5-day and two 4-day seminars (the 4-day pods will be held back-to-back with a 1-day break in-between), and our mentored correspondence course: IBE 101, Natural Healthy Buildings. Upon completion of these requirements, you will undertake a Final Project that is designed to demonstrate and confirm your grasp and mastery of Building Biology's three sustaining pillars (Natural Healthy Building Products, Indoor Air & Water Quality, Electromagnetic Radiation) as they apply to prevention by means of informed design and construction practices that install and help maintain a health-supporting built environment.
The elements of this program, depending on whether you undertake only those sessions that are of keenest interest to you or you proceed fully to IBE professional certification, convey up to 235 Continuing Education Units (AIA, ACAC, InterNACHI). Architects, builders, interior designers, engineers, and city planners are encouraged to enroll in this program; also encourage to enroll (in whole or in part) are homeowners who wish to acquire the means to convey the vital urgency of Building Biology principles to their chosen design/build/remodel professionals.
