The Professional Home Builders Institute (PHBI) is an approved Blue Seal education provider and the premium provider of quality education for the residential construction industry. Since 1987, PHBI has kept pace with the home construction industry’s ever changing needs by designing and delivering practical education that meets or exceeds the national benchmarks as established by the Canadian Home Builders Association.
PHBI is the not-for-profit leader that provides 27 core courses in three disciplines (Sales & Marketing, Business and Construction) through instructors that are recognized as subject matter experts in their respective disciplines.
In 2012, PHBI launched an educational program that leads to Canada’s first occupational designation for the residential construction industry - the Residential Construction Site Manager (RCSM) program. A designated occupation recognizes skills and competencies achieved through on-the-job training or formal education provided by industry. This designated occupation (RCSM) is recognized by the Government of Alberta and has been accepted by the industry as the standard for leaders in the home building profession.
