GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green
Saturday, May 4th – 8:00am to 2:00pm
Heartland Community College, Normal, IL
Space is limited. Register today!

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 (optional), but anyone with an interest in green building is encouraged to participate.

A GPRO certificate, presented after achieving a passing exam score, 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. (Exam optional)

Who Should Attend:
• Local professionals including: business owners, energy managers, facility operators, industry and manufacturing building owners, contractors, building officials, and municipal representatives
• Community college faculty, staff, and students

All trainings are offered at no charge! The Illinois Community College Targeted Energy Management Program is hosted by the Illinois Green Economy Network with support from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO).
