Earlier this month, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) announced an investment to help recruit, train, and mentor Energy Advisors (EAs). The funding will help increase the number of EAs across the country who will be able to support the growing requests for residential energy assessments driven by the launch of the Canada Greener Homes Grant program in 2021.
As a result of NRCan’s $359,000 investment in the Canadian Institute for Energy Training, CIET will be offering its full complement of Energy Advisor (REA) training programs at a significant discount – 60% or more off regular course prices.
In addition, up to 25% of all course seats will be dedicated to participants from under-represented areas and groups as described by NRCan, who will be eligible for 80% off regular course prices. Underserved areas are defined as the North (north of the 60th parallel), the Prairies and Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as rural, remote, and Indigenous communities more broadly. Under-represented groups are defined as including women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized individuals and individuals who identify as LGBTQ2S+.
Eligible CIET courses include:
Although CIET offers both private and public training programs, only public courses will be eligible for the funding amounts stated above. Below are the earliest upcoming public courses currently scheduled:
