GBI Partnerships


The Green Building Institute believes that forming partnerships is key to improving education for a sustainable built environment.

The only way progress can be made is by professionals from all industry sectors working together and learning from each-other.

That's why we have formed partnerships with over a dozen organisations and companies. Becoming an Industry Partner gives your organisation access to high quality courses, training and education. Industry Partners recieve their own e-learning portal, pre-populated with courses and presentations relevant to their industry. And it's free!

Most of our courses are mapped to nationally recognised qualifications, and feature hundreds of high quality multi-media lessons. TAFEs and Registered Training Organisations are able to use the resources and assessments, assured that they have been validated and moderated by industry.

What makes our courses unique?

GBI courses are created by fully qualified experts in sustainable building and construction, and crafted by our team of fully qualified instructional designers, who all come from the building industry. We don't just write about sustainability; we live and breathe it, with years of practical experience and know-how.

We use state-of-the-art e-learning technology, including web-cams and video response to bring our training onto any building site, or into any office. This unique technology allows tradies, builders and designers to see and hear their trainers, to get feedback and mentoring one-on-one. It's compatible with any device including smart-phones and tablets.

The lessons feature cutting edge pedagogy, including the use of case studies, scenarios, role play and up-to-date information that tradies and builders can relate to on their work-sites.

The following qualifications and units are available as fully mapped and validated assessments:

  • CPCCSV5013A: Apply principles of energy efficient design to buildings*
  • CPCSUS5003A - Manage energy efficient building methods and strategies#
  • CPCSUS4002A Use building science principles to construct energy efficient buildings#
