S1’s Green Workforce Training Program Continues to Offer GPRO Into the Fall

WF-2Solar One’s training lab is going to continue offering Urban Green’s GPRO Operations and Maintenance Essentials course and certificate into the fall. Classes will be held on September 30st and October 1st, with the certificate exam on October 2nd. Solar One can also provide private GPRO training for groups at your office.

Whether you are a superintendent, building maintainer, or property or facility manager, GPRO will help you make informed decisions about how to operate your buildings efficiently and safely. Going green not only results in energy savings, but will also reduce your heating and electricity costs, make tenant living and working environments healthier, and reduce the impact on the environment.

The GPRO Operations & Maintenance Essentials certificate course, which includes GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green, is designed for professionals who work in a wide range of medium to large-scale multi-family and commercial buildings.

Gain the critical awareness to transition from conventional to sustainable operations. The course begins with an overview of sustainability and green building and then focuses on building operations and maintenance practices such as: using building metrics to improve performance, improving the building envelope, reducing water use, employing strategies for more efficient and cost effective heating and cooling systems, minimizing energy use through energy efficient lighting, maintaining indoor air quality, and understanding NYC energy auditing and retro-commissioning requirements.

This two-part course is outlined in our comprehensive brochure.

Our next open class dates are September 30 to October 2.
