Certified Green Professionals must complete 24 hours of classroom training including 16 hours of green building instruction; must have two years’ industry experience, must sign a code of ethics and must commit to fulfilling continuing education requirements to qualify for the designation.
“Home owners and home buyers are demanding more green products and features in their homes, and the building industry wants to meet that demand. That’s how this market works,” said Dunn.
The CGP designation is a sign of professional commitment. Only 1,000 builders, remodelers and other members of the home building industry have earned the Certified Green Professional (CGP) educational designation nationwide since it was introduced early this year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
