Grow their knowledge of the "green" building risk environment
These unique courses are designed to teach the fundamentals of the green building movement – and address the challenges facing the insurance industry. Students who successfully complete both Green Risks I and Green Risks II earn the Green Risk Professional (GRP) certification. Offered exclusively at Vale, the GRP designates them as insurance professionals who have excelled in their understanding of green building and green products.
