Ready for the 2018 - 2019 Training Season?
Enroll in the Master Builder Designation Program today!

This is going to be a great year of training for our industry. Planning for the 2018 -2019 training season is underway with input from multiple MBI committees, task forces, and the Board of Directors.

As our staff and volunteer leaders work to put together high-level training opportunities with top-shelf presenters, we will also be assigning Master Builder Designation credits to every course and program we offer (excluding webinars). This means there will be hundreds of credits available through our leadership development programs, safety seminars, stand-alone training courses, and even our training-on-demand programs.

The first step to take to begin receiving these credits is to enroll in the Master Builder Designation program by completing the one-page application. As soon as we receive your completed application, we will update your profile to include any credits that you earned by attending MBI courses (since fall 2012). You will receive an email within a week informing you where you stand with your credits in the areas of Leadership, Project Management, Safety, Ecological, and Ethics and how close you are to the pinnacle of 150 credits and your Master Builder Achievement Award!

Essential Partners - The Name Says it All
The word ‘essential’ is an adjective meaning absolutely necessary or indispensable. This is how MBI views our partners who consistently support our programs and events.

MBI’s Essential Partner recognition program recognizes companies who have contributed over $3,000 in sponsorships to MBI events within the last year. Due to these companies commitment to MBI, they are recognized on MBI’s website and receive a full page company profile in one edition of InsideMBI, MBI’s quarterly news magazine. This recognition on the website and in the magazine is very exclusive since MBI does not offer any advertising on either platform.

For more information on opportunities to become an MBI Essential Partner, please contact Micah Loveless at or (515) 657-4398.
