There is no cost associated with attending Green Zone.

"I can say that I learned a lot from (Green Zone). I didn’t think that I would, because of having worked so closely with the ARMY for two years, but I did!! I already knew, in the ARMY there are no excuses; just results. I already understood that when you say you will do something; it will be done, just like instructed, and in the allowed time; but I left the training having learned a great deal more." (Past Green Zone participant)
