The GPRO training program is designed for experienced building professionals who seek to integrate green practices into the core knowledge of their trade.
Fundamentals of Building Green is the prerequisite for ALL GPRO trade-specific courses. 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.

What our Partners are saying:
“Both the GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green and Electrical Systems have been tremendously informative and interesting. What a great way for us as subcontractors and our skilled craftsmen to become familiar with the future of green building. By offering this type of training to our employees at LEI Companies, we are able to close the gap on the knowledge of green building in a way that all of our employees can understand. Now we know and have a platform to teach how and where our role in a green project is. It has been a great addition for our existing LEED AP’s as well as a wonderful introduction for our employees interested in becoming LEED accredited. They complement each other very well and we were so pleased to find out this GPRO certification provides CE credits and can be utilized as a LEED GA Prep Course. It is an invaluable certification as a standalone course, and additionally provides a great basic for other LEED programs providing the most value for our training dollar.”
