When registered for REA (2 prep courses) - NRCan

How do I become an accredited Service Organization (SO)?

Service Organizations are independent organizations licensed by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to use NRCan’s official marks, software and to deliver NRCan’s home labelling initiatives such as the EnerGuide Rating System (ERS) and ENERGY STAR® for New Homes (ESNH). Organizations requesting an ENERGY STAR for New Homes licence must hold an active EnerGuide Rating System licence and have a least one qualified EnerGuide Rating System energy advisor, service organization manager and quality assurance specialist and at least one energy advisor and quality assurance specialist who have passed the ENERGY STAR for New Homes GJ – Energy Advisor exam.
To apply to become an SO, please contact NRCan directly by visiting their website. Email:

If you’re looking for a service organization in your area to conduct a home energy audit or become associated with one, visit this page or the Greener Homes Grant portal.

This is to inform you that the course date is too close to be able to ship hard copies of the material to you on time. If you are willing to use the material in secured PDF, receive the material later (likely after the course) and pay upon registration, please click OK to continue the registration process. Please note that the shipping process will start only when the course fees are paid in full and delays are to be expected. Many thanks!
