(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Chicago, IL -  May 13, 2010 - Earning the right to be a Certified Green Consultant does not come from a simple desire to make a difference.  The Green revolution in 2010 has many pieces, but few people can put the whole mystery together.  After hearing about Green jobs for nearly two years, those looking for a career as a sustainability officer or Green consultant may now qualify for a single block grant program that is available to those who complete a simple qualification process.   The Green Business League is pleased to announce the commitment of $150,000 that can be applied to earning a certification as a Certified Green Consultant™ or a Certified Sustainability Officer™.

The Green Business League's program continues for a full year of support and continuing education to round out all that you should know about working with homes, schools, businesses, and organizations in your community.  The environmental challenge is a universal problem that requires universal participation.  With the Green Business League program, everyone can adopt Green Practices that are worth points toward a nationally-recognized certification. This is not a LEED program focused only on building owners.  Green Practices can be applied to every situation, and no one is exempt.  We look at the daily operational issues of indoor air quality, energy, waste, the paperless office, sustainable practices, Green Supply Chain, and dozens of other issues that people practice every day.

The problem is that most people want a better world, but they do not want to change anything to get there.  We are still in the early stages of the environmental revolution, but this is an inevitable and powerful movement that must be addressed at every level of society.  To be honest, groups like TerraPass have discovered that 96% of all Green products exaggerate their claims and frankly Greenwash.  Greenwashing is the popular method of environmental conformity, and this is because people simply do not have enough information or help to install an Authentically Green program.

There are three parts to our training program that will be taking place June 10-12, 2010 in Chicago, IL.  For a limited time a $150,000 single block grant offers a hefty tuition benefit to those who qualify under as unemployed, under-employed, or sponsored by their employer's program.  Grants range from $500 to $750 with only modest requirements for qualification.

The first is the Pre-Class material that is sent to each student once they enroll in one of our classes.  This is for orientation and to provoke your thinking.  The three-day Live Class is a fast-paced presentation of general and crucial subjects that will make you "knowledgeable" on nearly every environmental topic.  Finally, you will participate in a yearlong training and support program designed to round out your education.

The final day of the live class is how to market your business as a Green consultant.  This is a subject that goes missing is nearly any educational program.  The "How To" part is very important, and your success is very important to more than the Green Business League.  Every consultant is, frankly, an agent of change in their community.  Learning to the Green go-to person in your community will not happen because you are well educated, but from the fact that you press this information into a real program of community Greening.

As a Certified Green Consultant, you are head and shoulder above the self-appointed Green advisers.  Too often, Green advisers are narrow applications like: energy consultants, carbon credit promoters, sustainability counselors, solar power installers, or ISO quality control programmers.  None of these have the whole program although they make it sound like they do.  Our certification introduces the student to all the areas of environmental concern.  Therefore, your certification is very well-rounded and robust. 

This is a federal trademark, and a national program that presently has strong recognition.
As a Certified Green Consultant, you will be able to offer your professional services to assist homes, schools, and businesses on how to install Green Practices into their daily operation.  At 100 points of accumulated Green Practices, the business will qualify as Green Certified Business with the Green Business League. While there are other certifications cropping up on the Internet each month, none offer the credibility of the Green Business League.   We proudly say that our certification is "Earned, not Bought," and that says a lot about our level of commitment.  This is not a program that can be cheated or abused.

Only a Certified Green Consultant can offer what we offer. We know that hundreds of knock off certifications will crop up on the Internet and clandestine groups who hope to grab a piece of this growing market. Businesses that earn the GBL Green business certification represent the best Green businesses in America. This is a certification that is earned, and one that can be proudly promoted to a public that is willing to patronize an Authentically Green business.
