Biomimicry Specialist Certification Enrollment Deadline: March 2nd!

Last Chance to Enroll 
Now accepting participants to the 2012 Biomimicry Specialist certification program until March 2, 2012
Eastern North American and Western North American cohorts will form in the 2012 Biomimicry Specialist (BSpecialist) certification program and welcome participants from all over the world from a wide range of backgrounds. This eight-month intensive training program results in an official certification and is a unique opportunity to gain the critical orientation to biomimicry to jump-start the ability to offer biomimicry to  your company, clients, or students as a specialty skill within your discipline. >> See how 2011 BSpecialist alumni, Thomas Knittel of HOK, has incorporated his biomimicry training into the design of a Haitian children's center here

Online coursework includes Seeds of Biomimicry, Life's Principles, and Integrating Biology in Design as well as a Virtual Design Lab, in which you will tackle a biomimicry challenge with the support and guidance of your instructors. Three in-person sessions provide hands-on experience in orienting to, reading, and learning from an ecosystem in addition to time building community relationships within the cohort.

Want to help us develop a regional biomimicry network in your community? If so, this could make the experience even more rewarding. We’re now offering a 10% reduction on BSpecialist tuition to friends or colleagues who apply to take the course together and are ultimately accepted into the next cohort. We’re calling it our BFriends offer. We’re also offering the same tuition incentive to our friends in the USGBC community who are LEED APs and Green Associates. >> Learn more and even complete your 2012 BSpecialist application online here
