Education Committee

A critical component of the USIBD mission is education and training. As a newly formed professional organization in a specialized field like Building Documentation establishing that we are the "go to" venue for education and training would help to attract members and build credibility.

The following is a brief description of the Education Committee's subcommittees and their proposed areas of interest:

  • Training - The focus of this subcommittee will be to develop "on-the-job" training courses and programs that serve the needs of individuals who are either in the business or wanting to become qualified to pursue an employment opportunity.
  • Education - The focus of this subcommittee will be to liaison with established colleges and university programs to better prepare students to enter our profession by communicating with these programs about the skills and course work that is needed to be successful in building documentation
  • Certification - Within 3 to 5 years or perhaps sooner USIBD would like to offer a building documentation professional certification program. This would establish a threshold level of expertise for members who are certified and create value for all involved.
  • Outreach - The focus of this subcommittee would be to inform and educate the public about the benefits and mission of USIBD and to seek out mutually beneficial strategic partnerships. This would include other professional organizations and business groups.
