Green teacher

As more attention has become focused on green jobs, an increasing number of green-job training centers are popping up, like Green Education Services, a New York-based firm that offers training in certain U.S. cities on green building technology and energy auditing.

Zach Rose, the center's CEO, has 11 employees, including instructors that teach courses. Rose says his teachers don't hold degrees in education but have real-life experience related to the building industry such as interior design and architecture.

If you are interested in becoming a green teacher, a good first step is to become LEED-certified or trained in another aspect of green building.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building standard that certifies a building was constructed using environmentally friendly techniques. Individuals can earn several levels of LEED professional credentials through a series of exams. Information on the exams can be found on the U.S. Green Building Council website.
