In 2015 a three-day Development and Research Planning Forum at the American Institute of Architects headquarters in Washington launched a three-part Disaster Recovery Construction Specialist Initiative. Convened by Green Advantage, the International Code Council (ICC), and Antioch University New England Center for Academic Innovation, the leaders gathered agreed that construction personnel perform a critical role in the wake of catastrophes. Their knowledge, skills, and abilities are essential to community reconstruction.
On June 20, 2017 Green Advantage was notified of its achievement of accreditation under ANSI/ASTM E2659-09 for its Pre-construction Risk Assessment (PCRA) Certificate Program. This American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accreditation is recognized nationally and internationally. The accreditation ensures that this state-of-the-art credential for healthcare construction workers meets rigorous quality standards for both the PCRA Certificate Program and Green Advantage as a credentialing organization.
