  • Green Risk Professional (GRP) Certification*

    Students must successfully complete Green Risks I & II to earn the distinction of this unique green credential. Being designated GRP will position you as a frontrunner in servicing this lucrative new field of risk – a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

    Green Risks I

    In this two and one-half-day class, you will learn to:

    • Interpret green construction rating system (i.e. LEED) criteria and standards
    • Define and identify green construction and products, Energy Star and Zero Energy Homes
    • Review insurance policy coverage for unique green risks issues.

    Through case studies, you learn building components typical to green buildings and how they may contribute towards LEED credits. Students should have prior experience on conventional risks or losses.

    Green Risks II

    Also two and one-half days, this class provides you with more detailed knowledge of key green construction issues, building on what you’ve learned in Green Risks I (a prerequisite to enrolling in this class).

    Students who successfully complete Green Risks I and Green Risks II qualify for the Green Risk Professional (GRP) credential offered exclusively at Vale. This will help you gain a marketable competitive advantage in today’s U.S. insurance industry, as environmental risk grows in importance.
