Position: Welcome Desk Receptionist
Occasional • Ottawa


The Canadian Institute for Energy Training (CIET) is specialized in developing and delivering training and certification programs related to energy efficiency and effective energy management. Since 1996, it has offered a wide range of training programs on sustainable energy across Canada. The CIET is the exclusive training organization authorized by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) to provide training for its certification programs in Canada, including the Certified Energy Manager (CEM), the Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP), the Certified Energy Auditor (CEA) and the Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP). The CIET is also the exclusive Canadian licensee for the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council (NEEC) Building Operator Certification (BOC) program.   



The CIET will be providing federal-government employees with training in energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) management in Ottawa. So, the CIET is looking for a part-time receptionist who will man the welcome desk at the CIET’s Ottawa training courses and occasionally proctor certification exams when necessary. This receptionist reports to the CIET’s Training Coordinator.

However, the CIET cannot guarantee a minimum number of work hours, because the delivery of all of its training sessions depends on the number of trainees enrolled.
