The training focuses on integration of healthy building practices during building design, construction and renovation, and during ongoing building operations and maintenance. The primary topics covered are:

  • Integrated pest management

The training is a prerequisite to the certification process for the 2015 Enterprise Green Communities Criteria The training is also being offered to other HPD Preservation Programs, but not required. A DOHMH certificate of completion will be issued. The certificate is valid for three years, after which it will have to be renewed by re-taking the class.
