G|PRO Operations and Maintenance

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 not only reduce operating costs by 20-50%, but increase occupancy rates and tenant satisfaction. That’s one reason green operations and maintenance (O&M) practices are in high demand across the country.

 

Taught by industry experts, GPRO Operations & Maintenance Essentials provides building professionals with the critical tools to transition from conventional to sustainable operations. GPRO O&M is ideal for property managers and building staff in multi-family residential & high-rise commercial buildings including: 

 

  • Building superintendents
  • Operators
  • Facility and property managers
  • Operating engineers 
  • Stationary engineers

 

GPRO trained building operators and service workers can qualify for a LEED point for Existing Buildings projects under LEED Pilot Credit 81. See gpro.org/faqs for more info.
