Master Certified Green Professional (Master CGP)

Please read: Important Notice for active and inactive designees regarding designation renewals and continuing education requirements.

As green and high-performance construction turns to the mainstream, experienced green industry professionals seek an educational designation that signifies their long-standing commitment to and experience with sustainable building and remodeling. They find it with the Master Certified Green Professional (Master CGP) designation.

More than theory, this designation includes a series of hands-on curriculum requirements as well as significant experience in the field. Classes are held with the support and cooperation of Green Building Advisor, the leading green web publication in the field. The emphasis is on building science: a core competency in a field that changes almost daily as new products and techniques are introduced.

Like the Certified Green Professional course, the Master CGP classes are closely aligned with the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard, which includes chapters on energy, water and resource efficiency, indoor environmental quality, lot and site development and home owner education.
