Train with Green Leaders
Sustainable Strategies for Hotel & Resort Operations:
An innovative new training program at UH Maui College
Interested in gaining work experience with Maui’s Green Leaders? We invite you to apply for an immersive training program in sustainability best practices designed for hotel and resort operations. This will include a high-level overview of sustainability rating systems, such as LEED EBOM, Hawaii Green Business Program, Trip Advisor Green Leaders Program, Green Key, and Portfolio Manager. Particular emphasis will be placed on Trip Advisor’s Green Leaders Program and Green Key Rating System to prepare participants to complete an experiential learning project.
As a trainee, your training costs will be sponsored by one participating resort. You will attend in-class training, attend site visits, and participate in a 30-hr Sustainable Strategies Team Project supervised by instructors from Green Building Hawaii. Your team will produce a baseline analysis and develop recommendations for certification or improving the resort’s existing certification under Trip Advisor’s Green Leaders Program or a Green Key Rating for the property.
