)-- Boston Cedar Achieves Year Two Re-Certification Status in the “Certified Green Dealer™ Program”
Official designation underscores their commitment to understanding and promoting good green building techniques and greener product choices.
Boston Cedar is pleased to announce that it has completed the second year of continuing education with the Certified Green Dealer™ Program. Its staff has participated in a second year of voluntary educational training and testing on good green building techniques and green product choices in lumber and building materials.
The Certified Green Dealer Program was created under the auspices of LBM Journal, a national trade magazine serving the lumber and building material industry. The Program is based entirely on demonstrated understanding by building material personnel of “best practices” building science and green building basics. A lumberyard or building material distributor location can become a Certified Green Dealer™ if 75% or more of its sales personnel view a series of Web-based training videos (and pass seven tests and a final exam) about building basics, green building, and green building products.
This national training Program is the first of its kind in North America to provide lumber and building material dealer personnel with educational information about green building basics, and it requires that participants view online video modules and take rigorous tests to demonstrate knowledge of green building techniques and green product choices.
