Free supplemental Residential Auditor Study Guides


As part of our commitment to increase the number of professionals who are successful in becoming Residential Energy Advisors, CIET has produced two supplemental energy study guides which are vendor agnostic and unaffiliated with any third-party vendors – one for the Foundational Level Exam and one for the Energy Advisor Exam. Encompassing both exercises and additional information beyond what is available online or through reviewing the EnerGuide or Competency profiles, the purpose of these guides is to help more individuals study for and succeed in passing the two exams necessary in order to become a Residential Energy Auditor.


The guides have been compiled based on participant feedback and challenging areas identified by NRCan over the years from both the Foundational and Energy exams, primarily in the areas of Numeracy, Construction and renovation of low-rise housing, Building Envelope, HVAC and Building Science Principles.

CIET would also like to recognize the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), Knowenergy, and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) for their support and respective contributions to the guides.
