Green Professional Training (GPRO), Fundamentals of Building Green, July 20 & July 27, Los Angeles
Event Description

The construction industry is moving quickly towards greener, high-performing buildings, creating increased demand across the country for sustainable building skills.

This course teaches the basics of sustainability and provides an overview of the essential strategies and work practices that make buildings more efficient. GPRO covers the “green gap” between standard trade skills and the new awareness required to successfully implement sustainable building practices.

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.

GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green is the prerequisite for all GPRO trade-specific courses.

Offered in partnership with Metro, USGBC-LA is pleased to present the Fundamentals of Green Building course in two installments. The course fee includes materials, instruction, and certification exam.
