About this event
Low-carbon, energy-efficient construction will play a critical role in meeting increasingly stringent local and national building performance goals. These projects will require an understanding of new technologies, processes, and improved coordination across disciplines.
GPRO Construction Management provides practitioners with sustainability best practices and actionable strategies for every phase of construction, as well as how to avoid common mistakes. This course is ideal for a range of construction professionals, including Construction Managers, General Contractors, Owner’s Representatives, Project Managers, Site Superintendents, Estimators, Students, and others interested in entering the building and construction industry.
Participants take a two-day virtual training and then finish GPRO CM by completing three online electives that are most relevant to their work. Taught by highly knowledgeable industry professionals, participants will leave the course with practical steps to direct and manage successful, sustainable, and cost-effective projects.
Please Note: This is a 2-day training on 8/17/22 and 8/19/22, from 9 am – 1 pm. Full attendance is required in order to be eligible for the exam.

Why attend a GPRO training?
“The GPRO training was an amazing experience! The class covers a wealth of information: What is Sustainability, Measuring Building Performance, Climate Change and a history of the environmental movement (just to name a few). The instructors are well versed on the subject matters. A professional training manual is provided and it’s an excellent reference for all things related to green building, sustainability, conservation and more! I attended the training at Metro headquarters in downtown Los Angeles (adjacent to Union Station). They offer classes that are open to the public! After taking the GPRO training I have a better understanding of how green building can positively impact the environment, communities and jobs. I recommend this class for anyone interested in creating opportunities for growth in your career.” — Sheila Washington, Corporate Sustainability Programs, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
