|GPRO: Green Professional Building Skills Training is a series of courses and certificate exams developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to teach the people who build, renovate, and maintain buildings the principles of sustainability combined with trade-specific green construction knowledge. The program involves a combination of a 4-hour course in Fundamentals of Building Green followed by 6-8 class hours in your field (construction management, operations & maintenance, electrical, or plumbing). You will then take an exam, which, if you pass, will make you a GPRO Certificate Holder. This certificate will demonstrate your understanding of green building as it applies to your trade and will enhance your ability to compete for and participate in green jobs. All fees include materials for both courses and exam fees. For more information, specific course dates, and to register call (718) 663-8404.
