GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green + Construction Management
(10.0 GBCI CE Hours)

GPRO: Green Professional Building Skills Training, is a series of courses and certificate exams that teach the people who build, renovate, and maintain buildings the principles of sustainability combined with trade-specific green construction knowledge. GPRO Certificate Holders are positioned to meet the expectations of owners and tenants who want healthier, environmentally sustainable, and energy-efficient homes and offices.

The principal assumption is that participants already know their trade and these courses will give them the additional knowledge they may not have experienced on conventionally-built projects.

June 23: GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This course teaches the basics of sustainability and the essential strategies and work practices that make buildings green. The program materials and exam cover the “green gap” between standard trade skills and the new awareness and skills required to successfully implement green building. Individuals with experience in construction and building operations will have an advantage when taking Fundamentals of Building Green and in passing the certificate exam, but anyone with an interest in green building is encouraged to participate.
A GPRO certificate demonstrates that an individual understands green building as it applies to his or her trade and enhances that person’s ability to compete for and participate in green jobs. Read more about GPRO Fundamentals here.

June 25: GPRO Construction Management + Exam
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This course fills the “green gap” for individuals with construction experience such as: CM or GC Site Superintendent, Project Manager, Executive Project Manager, Project Engineer/Clerk, Sustainability Manager, experienced tradesman with five years of experience, tradesperson with site supervision or management responsibility, facilities manager or building owner, owner’s representative or project manager, project architect, professional engineer, or commissioning agent. Following the course material will be a 50-question multiple-choice exam. (You will not have to take the exam on day one, all material will be included in the day two exam).
