GPRO Operations + Maintenance (O+M) Essentials Training - CANCELLED
Green Professional Building Skills Training - Operations & Maintenance Essentials

OUR IN-PERSON EVENTS ARE CANCELLED DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING RECOMMENDATIONS. We have GPRO O+M training scheduled in August and November that we plan to hold either in-person or virtually depending on the situation. 

Please contact Emily Andrews at with any questions. 

What type of lighting is best for your building – LED, fluorescent, or halogen? How do you detect and fix hidden leaks in mechanical systems?

Efficient operations and smart maintenance in buildings reduces operating costs and increases occupancy rates and tenant satisfaction. GPRO O+M Essentials provides building professionals with strategies to improve efficiency, comfort, and health in our existing buildings. Participants leave with at least three immediately actionable measures and the next steps needed to achieve them.

This course is ideal for property managers and building staff in multifamily residential and commercial buildings, including: building superintendents, operators, facility and property managers, operating engineers and stationary engineers.
