Training participants attend a two-day, 16-hour course based on the overarching principles of green building and the systems approach to the design, construction and operation of buildings. The course is followed by a written exam. Expert instructors and guest speakers provide in-depth presentations on green building topics and green business marketing. Typical course content is outlined below:
Energy (conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy as it applies to framing, insulation, windows, water heating, appliances, heating/cooling and lighting)
Resource Conservation (jobsite waste/recycling, landscaping, water conservation, efficient framing, durability, and materials choices)
Indoor Air Quality (VOCs, finish materials, ventilation, filtration, mold, and IAQ construction practices)
Developing and Marketing a Green Business (consumer preferences, marketing tools, effective language, and green business case studies)
CGBP Certification & Attendance Information:
Attendance at each day of the training and a passing grade on the final exam are mandatory to earn a Certified Green Building Professional certificate. Participants who miss a session must attend a make-up session at a future CGBP training (within 12 months) before they can take the final exam and become certified. Build It Green is not responsible for following up with anyone who has missed a training session. It is the responsibility of the participant to contact Build It Green to reschedule a makeup session.
A final exam on all four modules will occur on the last day of the training. The 1-hour CGBP exam is included in the fee of the course and is given on the second day at 4:00 p.m. Successful completion of the CGBP training and exam will qualify the student as a CGBP and will be valid for two years.
If an attendee does not receive a passing grade (80%) on the final exam, they have the option to re-take the exam at the end of a future CGBP training session for a fee of $50.00.
