Continuing professional development program

Everything you need to know

The GBCA has developed the Green Star Professional development program which allows professionals to be recognised for their knowledge and contribution to building a more sustainable built environment.

Our program offers two levels of accreditation: Green Star Accredited Professional (GSAP) and Green Star Associate (GSA).
