Fundamentals of Building Green is the required prerequisite for ALL GPRO courses.

The GPRO training program is designed for experienced building professionals who seek to integrate green practices into the core knowledge of their trade.

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.
