BEAM Pro Specialty will be Effective from 1 January 2017!

19 Dec 2016

 
Effective from 1 January 2017, the new scheme of BEAM Professionals (BEAM Pro) Specialty Training and Examination will be launched. 
 
Accredited by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC), the new BEAM Pro specialty credentials will accredit professionals by their specialisation in one or multiple BEAM Plus assessment tool(s).

For the existing BEAM Pro, their current qualifications would be transferred to the new specialty with no incurred fee. The transition of the BEAM Pro title is shown below:
 
Existing BEAM Pro Designation New Designation with Specialty
BEAM Pro BEAM Pro (NB, EB)
綠建專才(新建建築、既有建築)
BEAM Pro (incl. BI) BEAM Pro (NB, EB, BI)

With the launch of BEAM Plus Existing Buildings V2.0, existing BEAM Pro are required to attend the Upgrade Training Courses to acquire the qualification for the new versions or new tools, which are now available at BEAM Society Online Training Portal.

BEAM Pro Specialty Training is conducted by BEAM Society Limited (BSL). Green building practitioners who aim at gaining the professional BEAM Pro accreditation are required to undertake the online Fundamental Course as a prerequisite before opting into any elective training, namely, NB, EB, BI and ND courses. The first BEAM Pro (NB) Training will be organised in March 2017.
