Based on participant and industry feedback, the Canadian Institute for Energy Training (CIET) is excited to announce the creation of four new courses to its roster of Energy Efficiency training programs.
Whether you are looking to add skills to your toolbox, find ways for your organisation to save on energy costs, or better calibrate the building systems you work with, each course offers an excellent opportunity to be exposed to new concepts and tools.
Learn more about each of our new courses and learning objectives:
Building Operators | Technicians | Project Managers | Consulting Engineers | Property Managers
At its core, a well-run Building Automation System (BAS) will reduce energy consumption, and allow for a more efficient operation of a building’s systems. This should in turn allow the building management to increase the comfort of their tenants while reducing their operating costs.
In this 1-day course, we will examine systems basics and energy conservation strategies that we permit you to run your BAS efficiently and effectively — regardless of which system you are running.
Building Operators | Consulting Engineers | HVAC Specialists | BAS Programmers | BAS Designers
Building on participants’ established knowledge of BAS, this course offers an in-depth focus on the design, diagnostic, trend monitoring, and control strategies that will allow participants to run their buildings with superior efficiency and energy management.
This 1-day training leverages a BAS diagnostic case study exercise using real-time data to reinforce the principles taught in the course.
This course is relevant to all those in charge of energy in commercial and institutional buildings.
Economic circumstances require companies and organizations of all types to improve their cashflow. Luckily, energy is not a fixed cost and can be managed just like any other business function. This course will provide time-tested and applied ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings, notably under varying occupancy levels.
Drawing from the experience of our expert instructors, as well as from highly relevant material from NRCan’s Dollars to Sense program, CIET has created a 1-day workshop to help you take control of energy use to improve financial performance and reduce your operation costs.
Upon completion of this workshop and supporting activities, participants will be able to:
Building Operators | Facility Operations Staff | Building/ Asset Managers | Energy Managers |
Service Providers to the commercial building industry | Commercial Project Managers
This 1-day workshop is an interactive course designed to engage, motivate and empower Building Operators. Our instructors will facilitate participants’ understanding of how energy behaves, how energy is used in their facility, and how it can be controlled through operational action across a variety of building systems.
A unique aspect of this training course is the Virtual Energy Hunt which will bring participants into a building with the use of visuals and real-time BAS data. This will allow participants to take part in a detailed examination of a building and its systems. Based on the results of the energy hunt, participants will review what systems can offer the most energy savings, and how to prioritize actions.

Important COVID-19 Update for CIET Spring 2020 Training Calendar – CIET Goes Virtual!
Last Updated: April 21, 2020
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.
You can find more information about CIET’s virtual training approach:
You can postpone your registration to a future session if desired, though we cannot yet determine how long the COVID-19 crisis will last. Indications from governments seem to indicate that isolation and travel restrictions might last for longer than we would like. For now, we propose keeping the registrations of all participants active. We will inform you of new dates as they become possible/available, including our new Fall 2020 training dates, which should be announced in May-June. Should you wish to cancel later, we have 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 in our virtual classrooms!
The CIET Team
