Institution makes available training and/or other professional development opportunities in sustainability to all staff at least once per year.

Separate training opportunities for each department would count for this credit, as long as each staff member has an opportunity to learn about sustainability at least once per year.  

It is not necessary that each staff member attend such trainings; the credit is based on making training available to all staff.

The following training opportunities are not sufficient for this credit:

  • Specialized training for a small group of staff

This credit applies to all institutions.
