Metro to offer G-PRO as online training course on April 15 and 22

Screen capture of Zoom webinar on Intro to Resilience.

Due to the current stay-at-home order, the following Growing a Greener Workforce training course will be available as an online webinar via Zoom:

G-PRO is a comprehensive green building training and certificate program developed with and for those who build and operate building infrastructure.

Training Details:

  • Two sessions: April 15 and April 22, from 10 a.m. to noon.
  • There will be a take home online exam.
  • Zoom link will be sent out the day prior.

The course will be similar to the Zoom webinar “Introduction to Resilience” held last month. More than a dozen attendees were active asking questions and there were several interesting comments regarding resilient communities and how community plays a central role in difficult circumstances and disasters.

G-PRO introduces participants to the principles of green concepts and terminology. Successful completion qualifies contractors, trades, building operators and service workers for LEED pilot credit 81 under New Construction and Exiting Buildings.
