Session Attendance Reporting

Attendance Recording
Attendance at education sessions will be recorded through a name badge scanning system at the entrance to each education session. All Greenbuild attendees must scan at the entrance to each session to record their attendance. Scanning will begin 30 minutes before each session start time and end 10 minutes after the start of each session, after which credit will not be granted. Attendees cannot earn credit for a course if they did not scan into a course or entered the course later than ten minutes after the session start time.


Attendance Reporting
Attendance at Greenbuild 2016 GBCI and AIA-approved education sessions will be reported to GBCI and AIA automatically, for attendees who include their membership numbers in their registration accounts.

Self-Reporting Attendance
Attendees can view their course attendance records and print a Certificate of Completion for self-reporting for other credentials in their dashboard.
