Wayne is our principal instructor for the G|PRO series of classes. G|PRO is a certificate program that teaches the people who build, renovate, and maintain buildings how to use tools to integrate high-performance construction and maintenance practices into their everyday work. G|PRO training is a must have for building trades, contractors and operators who want a better understanding of LEED and green building practices and how they affect the job site.

G|PRO  is officially the first green building training program to qualify under LEED Pilot Credit 81 - Green Training for Contractors, Trades, Operators and Service Workers! Pilot Credit 81 is worth one point for projects going for certification under both New Construction and Existing Building rating systems.

This means general contractors and trade subcontractors can now bring a point to LEED projects by having G|PRO  Certificate Holders among their staff and trades working on those projects. It also means that property managers, engineers, and other operational staff can bring one point to their existing properties.

Additionally, Wayne is our team leader in two other very important components of our sustainability program at Green NRG: 1) development of the CZEP (Certified Zero Energy Practioner) certification program and 2) creation of the Green NRG annual Zero Net Energy Conference and Expo at the beginning of each year.
