CIET Attends AESP Ontario Speaker Series

Mohawk College hosted the latest of the Speaker Series events on November 26. This event was attended by a mix of energy professionals representing the utilities sector, the institutional and governmental sectors, energy consulting and service organisations. CIET’s Olivier Cappon was also in attendance. The presentations made by members served to highlight the resources, successes and services available for Distributed Energy Resources (DERs).


Following the DER presentations, participants were given a tour of Mohawk College’s new Net Zero Facility, the Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation. The Centre was fully completed in 2018 and provides a great example of various technologies and systems working together in a large multi-use building for the Hamilton/Stoney Creek area.

About the Speaker Series

Although Thomas Edison could easily find one of his original light bulbs in operation today, the energy industry has made some significant changes over the last 10 years, but is poised for momentous advancement and major redesign over the next decade. With distributed energy resource technologies rapidly advancing, becoming more economically viable, customers becoming more energy savvy and increasingly concerned with resiliency, and climate change impacting and disrupting the current systems, critical change is imminent. – AESP

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
