APR 23 thru MAY 1

Weekend Session:

Buildings are major consumers of natural resources in the US, accounting for 47% of energy use and 13% of water use. #GPRO is North America's top program for teaching the people who build, renovate and maintain buildings the principles of sustainability, combined with techniques they can use on the job the very next day.

Now, the University of Miami is the only university in Florida offering GPRO Training customized for the unique climate and regional needs of South Florida!

Over two days, participants will learn to use building metrics to reduce operating costs, improve occupancy rates and raise tenant satisfaction. The knowledge learned in this training enables participants to implement leading-edge practices that reduce energy, water use, and waste, plus make buildings healthier and safer for occupants.

Upon completion of the training, participants earn the University of Miami Green Professional Building Skills Training Certificate, an industry-recognized credential that demonstrates their knowledge of the most current sustainability best practices.

The University of Miami's GPRO Training is in partnership with the University of Miami - College of Engineering and is also a module in the Master of Science in Construction Management program.
