The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon® is partnering with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to host the next Solar Decathlon Professionals Program (SD Pro) cohort!

SD Pro builds on the success of the Solar Decathlon collegiate competition to provide industry professionals with an opportunity to develop building science expertise and gain practical experience designing zero-energy projects.

This advanced-level course is designed for those familiar with general building sciences who want a deeper understanding to apply these concepts to green building projects or teaching. Potential participants might include early to mid-level professionals, facility managers, builders, or higher education faculty.

Earn 30+ GBCI (Green Business Certification Inc.) continuing education credits by enrolling in this virtual, hands-on, zero-energy design course!

  • The training is a blended learning experience of online on-demand content and live virtual weekly sessions. The course incorporates the Solar Decathlon’s Building Science Education Series, as well as online weekly sessions with the instructor and students.
  • The winter cohort runs from January 18 to March 21, 2024. Virtual, live sessions will be held on Thursdays from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. ET.
  • Students will complete a net zero energy building design project.
