GPRO is a comprehensive national training and certificate program developed by Urban Green Council. The program teaches the principles of sustainability and trade-specific green construction knowledge to people who build, renovate and maintain buildings.

GPRO courses range from our foundational course, Fundamentals of Building Green, to technical trade-specific classes focused on filling the green-gap between energy efficiency and conventional building and construction knowledge. Working with unions, USGBC chapters, non-profits, workforce development groups and real estate companies throughout North America, we have trained over 16,000 building professionals to date.
