Welcome to the Green Jobs Academy (GJA) at the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC). Since 2010, GJA/SMOC has been a preferred resource for information, technical training, and best practices in the home performance industry.
GJA is one of the leading providers of building science trainings in Massachusetts. Our facilities, in Worcester and Framingham, MA, are designed to integrate classroom training and laboratory exercises providing field technicians an exceptional learning experience.

The trainers at the GJA are experts in their field.
