Important COVID-19 Update: CIET switches to virtual real-time classroom
Schedule and Logistics
Considering the current situation, CIET is bringing most of its spring training sessions to you through virtual real-time classrooms. You should know that :
- The course will begin at 8:30 am and end at 4:30 pm each day, according to (GMT-05:00) Eastern [US & Canada] time.
- We will be using GoToTraining platform which has great interactive features.
- We will include dedicated time for questions.
- We will take breaks, just as in a real classroom.
- You will receive the login details by email upon registering to the course.
- We recommend that you use computer audio, rather than connection by phone if possible as well as headphones to avoid sound feedback.
CAN-QUEST is a Canadian adaptation of eQUEST. This powerful energy modelling software can assess and demonstrate performance path compliance with the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB 2011). It can also be used to support the design of high performance commercial and institutional buildings. This hands-on 2-day advanced workshop will provide specific training on the software and explore its features as well as the modelling process.
Upon training completion, participants will be able to:
- Prepare an energy model in CAN-QUEST
- Use Wizards to set up preliminary models
- Use Detailed Mode for accurate modeling
- Understand DOE reporting and calculations
- Use CAN-QUEST and eQuest as a compliance tool
Who should attend?
This short thematic course is ideal for the following clientele:
- Energy-related design decision makers
- Energy modellers
- Electrical engineers
- Mechanical engineers
- Engineers and technicians
CIET has been granted the only commercial licence by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to deliver CAN-QUEST software training in Canada.
