Earn Your Green Professional Operations & Management (GPRO) Certification.

The Institute offered two GPRO courses during the Spring of 2015, with support from the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.  This nationally recognized course is endorsed by the U.S. Green Building Council and Urban Green.  The course was offered at no cost to state and municipal employees and at a small cost ($300) to others. The course included 3 full-day class sessions, GPRO materials and resources, the GPRO exam, and professional certification.

The course provides critical tools to help those interested or involved with building maintenance transition from conventional to more sustainable operations. The Course also covers topics such as energy benchmarking, auditing training, and an overview of CT environmental compliance programs.
