Associate Professional Training (APT) course at Green Building Council of Sri Lanka

Before enrolling into the Associate Professional Training (APT) course at Green Building Council of Sri Lanka, I was clueless about green concepts or sustainable development. I developed an interest to join a project soon after I read about green rating projects. Thus I’m delighted to say that I found the key partner of sustainable development, Green Building Council of Sri Lanka.
