Program Overview

The Working with the National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) course provides tools to help anyone who must work regularly with the code to either comply with or enforce it. The course covers the most important aspects of the NECB, notably building envelopes, lighting, HVAC, and water heating.

This two-day course enables participants to comprehend the implications of the code for themselves and the perspectives of others. Day 1 is focused on theoretical elements to lay a solid foundation for Day 2 that involves numerous workshops. Activities such as group discussions and fictional case studies demonstrate to participants the importance of implementing NECB best practices.

Participants involved in this course should have prior work experience to be able to share various case studies with their colleagues during course activities. Such activities require participants to adopt a problem-solving approach to resolving issues. They may also prepare by brushing up on their knowledge of the NECB and studying the various versions of the code.

  • Define the requirements of the NECB.
  • Apply a work methodology to ensure requirements are duly met.
