The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in the construction industry on the whole will grow from 6.1 to 6.3 million jobs by 2024. Training workers in both residential and commercial construction is critical to our economy and to the rebuilding of our bridges, roads, railways, and runways. In commercial construction, credentials provide benchmarks and promote advancement in the industry. For example, individuals can earn the LEED Green Associate™ credential, the LEED AP® BD+C credential, and a WELL AP® credential as they master various aspects of how sustainability is a key component of construction processes and management.
