2018 was quite the year. The following is an abridged version of everything you need to know about CIET training in 2018.


3 New Things About Our Courses







CIET Added two new courses in the residential sector aimed at supporting existing and aspiring Energy Advisors across the country: The Prep course for the NRCan Foundation Level Exam and the Prep course for the NRCan ERS v15 Energy Advisor Exam.


Along with this, CIET also introduced two free Supplemental Exam Guides. Download the guides here.











Due to participant feedback, we made changes to our Building Energy Modelling featuring CAN-Quest, breaking the content out into two different courses, and strengthening the content on NECB compliance – which after all is arguably the most important feature of the CAN-Quest software, and energy modelling as a whole.

Also in 2018, CIET introduced subsidies for its courses in the province of Alberta, provided by Energy Efficiency Alberta (EEA). Thanks to this partnership, which provides a 50% subsidy for residents of the province, there has been a tremendous amount of interest and participants exposed to various concepts and knowledge of Energy Efficiency.
