Green Star Accredited Professional Programme for Existing Buildings

About the Programme.

This 3-part programme provides an overview and understanding of the Existing Building Performance rating tool. We cover the credits of this tool that is designed for rating any type of existing building. 

The face to face workshop offers the participant the opportunity to experience the tool in action while the online course dives into more technical detail of the tool. After attending both these parts participants then complete the online exam in order to obtain a AP Existing Building Accreditation.

This rating tool can also be applied to a portfolio of buildings as it allows for the pre-certification of policies to be applied to each building.

The 3 Part Format

This full day workshop is hosted by the GBCSA and a faculty member and gives a high level understanding of the tool. Group exercises and scenario's try help the student to understand how the tool may be applied. 

The online course focuses on the more technical aspects of the EBP rating tool.  You will be granted access to the course via your GBCSA dashboard. The course will be open for a 2 week period with 8-12 hours contact time required. 

To qualify to write the exam, one needs to have completed both the online course and the face to face workshop. The exam is open book and 2 hours long. One needs 75% or more to pass the exam and qualify as an AP-Existing Buildings.
