Why should I become REA?

Energy advisors grasp the central elements of daily duties such as assessing the energy performance of residential homes and providing advice on potential energy savings during the design, construction, and renovation stages. After obtaining the energy advisor designation, new energy advisors affiliated with a licensed service organization will be able to conduct energy evaluations in accordance with NRCan’s EnerGuide Version 15 guidelines, Part 9 on residential buildings, excluding multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) because these require an additional professional certification. The audience for this designation is building individuals who have successfully passed the NRCan Foundation Level exam and want to become an energy advisor, service organization staff, HVAC experts, electricians and other technicians, individuals with an interest in energy efficiency and a desire to understand what makes a building comfortable and energy efficient, and construction professionals.
