Certified Green Professional

Members attending the National Green Building Conference on May 11-13 at the Sheraton New Orleans can take pre- and post-conference courses required for NAHB’s newest designation, Certified Green Professional (CGP).

The CGP designation teaches builders, remodelers and other industry professionals techniques for incorporating green building principles into homes using cost-effective and affordable options.
