Our GPRO Electrical Systems is a Green Professional Building Skills Training (GPRO) course that is offered by George Brown College Continuing Education in partnership with the Urban Green Council and includes the GPRO certificate exam. This is the Urban Green Council description: "GPRO Electrical Systems (GPRO EL) digs into the latest innovations in the electrical industry and how they lead to increased efficiency and cost savings. New technologies and practices are compared to conventional approaches, allowing participants to understand their direct role in improving building performance. GPRO EL is ideal for a range of professionals in the electrical industry, including subcontractors, installers and technicians. Students learn about economic opportunities for the electrical industry; the role of electrical systems within the “whole-building” approach; improving efficiencies in lighting and HVAC; new technologies for distributed generation; using benchmarking and other tools to maintain building performance; the electrician’s role in the building commissioning process; retrofitting existing buildings with energy-efficient technologies; and green bidding issues for electricians."
