The resources below have been made available as part of the GBI’s mission to accelerate the adoption of green building practices. These resources include tools, white papers, educational videos, and a variety of instructional training covering Green Globes®, Guiding Principles Compliance, Personnel Certification Programs, and more.
Green Globes Personnel Certification Programs
The GBI offers two Personnel Certification Programs: Green Globes Professional (GGP) and Green Globes Assessor (GGA). These programs have been created to support the national adoption and growth of Green Globes by creating, maintaining, and growing a network of contracted individuals trained and authorized to support the assessment and certification process.
Guiding Principles Compliance Personnel Certification Program
GBI has recently launched a new training and certification program for Guiding Principles Compliance that enables facilities managers, engineers, and consultants to learn about the guiding principles assessment requirements mandated by E.O. 13514. The course provides the option to be certified as a Guiding Principles Compliance Professional (GPCP), and to take the training without certification in order to become more knowledgeable.
Green Globes Customer Training
