Online Learning Programs

Keeping up to date on Green Star should be easy, so the GBCA is proud to introduce a new online learning platform to bring you Green Star professional development and learning resources on demand.

Short video presentations allow you to access useful information, develop your knowledge of Green Star and earn CPD points in your own time, at your own pace.

Each video module has its own online quiz, the completion of which earns you CPD points for your Green Star qualification.
