The cost for this GPRO Operations & Maintenance Essentials course is $385 per person, including breakfast and lunch for both days. Courses will be hosted by the Urban League of Louisiana at 3502 S. Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70118. The dates are Wednesday, March 20th and Thursday, March 21st, from 9am to 5pm. Interested parties can register online here.

Here’s what prior attendees had to say about their GPRO certificate program experience: 

“The course provided me with a clearer understanding of how to achieve reasonable ‘green goals’ … as a building Superintendent.” 

“As a Licensed Contractor, I appreciated how the GPRO certificate course applied Green Building Principles the whole team could understand… I found tremendous value in knowing there is training that puts the entire team on the same page.” 

“What a great way for us as subcontractors and our skilled craftsmen to become familiar with the future of green building.” 

“I found the course to be very informative. It reinforced awareness of where we as building operations and maintenance professionals can make improvements in the operations of our buildings to make them more efficient.”
