Certifications in Natural Building
The Natural Living Design & Build team will only be accepting participants who are interested in completing any or all the certification programs we have to offer. The courses are extremely intensive and only prospective students that are truly interested in making a career in the field of natural building or permaculture should apply. Students need to understand that the level of commitment to the school, classes, and grueling schedule are for those with a high level of discipline, commitment, and energy. With full commitment, participants should be willing to not only work full time on the job site but also be eager to independently learn outside of work with recommended reading and learning opportunities.
