BSP is preparing to launch a certification program called the "Green Janitor Education Program" for custodians at a California State Department headquarters near downtown Sacramento. In this program, janitors will develop competency in sustainability efforts in the operations and maintenance of buildings. The program covers an introduction to sustainability concepts, green cleaning practices, and water and energy efficiency. The workers take two exams and are certified upon completion of the program (30 hours) and passing the examinations. The course is taught in English.
