EBD Boot Camp Attendees Work with Expert Guides
to Resolve Project Design Issues

"I have attended a lot of workshops over my career, but the EBD Boot Camp was far and away the best application of useful, practitioner-based information that could be brought back to our office and used immediately in our practice.  I really do think it was the best value in a continuing education environment I have had in many years."

Peter Stanley, LEED AP, Principal, ArchiLOGIX
