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 5:00 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.


Whether you are a recent arrival to Canada, a new professional just entering the job market, a student completing their studies, or looking to further your career in energy efficiency, CIET has developed a course that will give you pragmatic knowledge and skills that you can demonstrate and apply to an employer from the outset. The program can also be seen as a steppingstone toward the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) designation – which is normally taken only after at least three years of experience in the field.


Participants in this course will:

  • Be exposed to the principles, systems, codes and regulations that govern energy efficiency
  • Gain well-rounded knowledge of energy management
  • Understand the basics of how to calculate energy, benchmark and audit
  • Learn where energy savings can be found in a building or facility
  • Teach participants about energy supply and management

Who should attend?

  • Professionals in career transition
  • New Canadians interested in a career in Energy Efficiency
  • Professionals seeking to upgrade their skills
  • New graduates
  • Recently hired energy management professionals




Topics to be covered include:

  • Energy Fundamentals describes the basic principles of energy, how to manipulate units of measure and helps to understand power and energy terms.
  • Energy Rates describes the different charges that apply to energy consumption and demand, and explains the incremental cost of electricity and thermal energy.
  • Tools for Energy Audits lists and describes the various tools that support an energy audit and how to use these tools to help identify opportunities for energy reduction.
  • Energy Saving Calculations explains the importance of various tools used when calculating energy savings and how to apply them.
  • Motors, Fans, Pumps Savings & VSDs describes a method to assess savings opportunities in motor driven systems, identifies common opportunities and the savings calculation required for speed control.
  • Heating Systems describes the basics of combustion and different types of boilers, how to maximize the efficiency of a condensing boiler, and identifies improvement opportunities and best practices for optimum performance
  • Cooling Systems Savings describes the key components of mechanical cooling and refrigeration systems, how the systems operate, and how to identify energy saving opportunities for cooling systems.
  • Lighting System Savings explains lighting systems terminology, describes the various components of an effective lighting system and how they interact, and identifies conservation and efficiency.
  • Building Envelope Savings describes the mechanisms for heat loss through building envelope, identifies tools and methods to assess opportunities for improvements, and describes building envelope energy savings opportunities.
  • Renewable Energy identifies where renewable energy is appropriate, the major sources of renewable energy (RE), and the tools used to estimate savings potential for RE systems.

Important COVID-19 Update for CIET Spring 2020 Training Calendar – CIET Goes Virtual!

Last Updated: March 24, 2020, 09:20am


CIET Goes Virtual!

The entire CIET team has been working hard recently to provide new training options for you through virtual real-time classrooms considering the current situation. This will allow everyone to continue accessing CIET training in a safe manner, which protects both our participants and our trainers. You can register for these virtual courses in confidence, knowing that they will provide the same quality of training that you expect from CIET. These real-time training sessions will be available to all participants across Canada.


REGISTER FOR VIRTUAL TRAINING TODAY: You can view all these virtual training courses on our calendar!


Deferred courses

For now, CIET has taken the decision to defer all in-class courses which cannot be offered virtually, scheduled before June 15, 2020.


If you are NOT registered to a course yet:

We are still taking registrations for all courses (deferred and virtual) and will communicate with registered participants to a deferred course when it becomes possible to offer the training again in person.

Cancellation policy: Should you wish to cancel later, we’ve suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately. This suspension will be effective for all registrations made prior to, at least, April 30, 2020.

If you ARE registered to a deferred course:

Courses offered before June 15, 2020, which cannot be offered virtually, are currently deferred.

For now, we propose keeping the registrations of all participants active and informing you of: (1) new dates as they become possible/available; and (2) our new fall 2020 training dates, which should be announced in May-June. Your registration and payment could then be applied, without additional fees, to any new training session.

Should you still wish to cancel, we’ve suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately.


Through all these measures, CIET hopes to provide as much flexibility as possible to training participants while respecting its commitments to other participants, trainers and partners, as well as public health recommendations.


We thank you very much for your trust and collaboration and look forward to welcoming you soon with an elbow bump!


Best regards,

The CIET Team
