G|PRO Fundamentals – Green Training for Contractors, Trades, Operators and Service Workers

Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018

Design teams, general contractors, and trade subcontractors can now bring a point to LEED® projects by having G|PRO Certificate Holders among their staff and trades working on those projects. It also means that property managers, engineers, and other operational staff can bring one point to their existing properties.

G|PRO is a certificate program that teaches the people who build, renovate, and maintain buildings the tools to integrate high-performance construction and maintenance practices into their everyday work. G|PRO training is a must have for building trades, contractors and operators who want a better understanding of LEED and green building practices and how they affect the job site.

What the students will learn:
• Overview of green building strategies
• Economic and health benefits of green building
• Causes and impacts of a changing climate on buildings
• Transitioning to sustainable construction practices
• Complying with green codes and standards
• Understanding LEED
• The importance of building commissioning (systems quality assurance)

This course is ideal for a range of audiences including:
• Sales or administrative staff who work in real estate, construction, architecture or engineering
• Workforce development providers
• Facilities and operations support staff
• College students interested in entering the building and construction industry

G|Pro Fundamentals explains how different systems work together to make buildings efficient, healthy and resilient, as well as where the green building industry is headed.
