Eco Institution is the leading educational organization for online training of green consultants worldwide. The Eco-Consulting business is rapidly growing as consumers and business owners are increasingly searching for environmentally-friendly products and solutions for their homes and businesses. Employing the latest in web-based instructional technology, the Eco-Consultant Certification Course is available online 24/7. Courses can be completed at the student's own pace and on his or her own schedule. Each of the courses includes detailed easy-to-read text-based lessons. Many successful green consultants work in complementary fields such as real estate, architecture, construction and home inspection. On the other hand, some successful green consultants had no previous experience or training whatsoever. The comprehensive course covers dozens of topics including energy conservation, water conservation, green transportation, recycling, engineering; green home auditing and business auditing; operating and marketing an eco-consulting practice; plus becoming a community environmental advocate. Advanced courses will cover environmental, energy-conservation, and engineering topics in even greater depth. Completing the certification process will help to prepare students for their globally recognized LEED certification examination. Upon completion of the program, graduates will receive a diploma and a feature-rich business startup kit. The startup kit includes a customizable website and more than 70 pieces of professionally designed marketing materials. Graduates will receive client handouts, worksheets, auditing guides, plus marketing and promotional tools - which can all be customized with the Green Consultant's name and contact information. Additionally the kit includes placards and posters that Eco Consultants can display at homes or businesses that they have audited, documenting that these structures have been Green-Certified.
