Registered Trainer Seminars

Hey exterior and interior plant professionals!

Plant benefits include increased worker productivity, hospital healing rates, tenant and employee retention, sales volume, and many more. Share the statistics behind this good news – establish your company as the thought leader in creating healthy living spaces.

Our seminars will give you the necessary credentials, training and authority to get in front of architects, landscape architects, designers, building owners and managers, and LEED APs to educate them about the many health and productivity benefits of plants in our built environments.

We provide you with content-rich PowerPoints, scripts, and White Papers for our CEU presentations on popular design topics such as living walls, green roofs, authentically green interiors, and biophilic design.

GPGB is an approved education provider for AIA, IDCEC, ASID, BOMI, ASLA, USGBC and 13 Canadian affiliated organizations.
