College offers insight into program, careers in Sustainable Construction Management Technology
Okanagan College Media Release

As home builders, home buyers and community developers lean more deeply into realizing the possibilities of sustainable construction practices, those tasked with turning ideas into reality are in need of a new skill set to help meet the expectations of building green in the 21st Century.

Okanagan College has developed a new program to train construction professionals in this field and is hosting an information session at its Penticton campus on Tuesday, April 30 at 4 p.m. to shed light on the Sustainable Construction Management Technology (SCMT) diploma program and the opportunities that exist for graduates.

Beginning this fall, Penticton’s Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Technologies and Renewable Energy Conservation will be home to the new three-year program, which is the first of its kind in the region.

“We are really excited about this program and we know there is a lot of interest in finding out more about the program and careers in this emerging field,” said Trevor Butler, the College’s lead faculty member for the program. “The information session will provide a great opportunity for those who are interested in finding out about admission requirements, the program’s content and the possibilities that exist for those who complete it.”

The information session gets underway at 4 p.m. in room PC 204 at the Penticton campus. The session will also be webcast, for anyone who is unable to make it to Penticton – http://klo-media-1.okanagan.bc.ca.
