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.

Bring to training:

  • A refillable water bottle or drink container, to limit disposable water bottle use.
