Training Providers

Although preparatory training is not required to take the Green Advantage Certified Practitioner® (GACP®) or Green Advantage Certified Associate® (GACA®) exam, training is recommended. The following groups may currently provide preparatory training and have requested that they be listed on the Green Advantage website. Note that Green Advantage does not authorize, endorse, or control training in preparation for its exams. Candidates who wish to take training should assess training provider capability. Here are some tips for assessing training provider capability.
