Get started in your career as an energy advisor

Our Energy Efficiency program features an Energy Foundation exam preparation course and an Energy Advisor exam preparation course, both of which are specially designed to prepare you for the exams administered by Natural Resources Canada.

Students will receive foundational knowledge of building science, including the construction and renovation of low-rise housing, safety considerations, heating and ventilation, the house-as-a-system concept, and Hot2000 Modelling Version 11.

Work towards providing EnerGuide ratings for homes

The clean and green industry is more important than ever before. Organizations, communities, and individuals are continuously working to improve the environmental efficiency of homes, buildings, and offices around the country.

Energy advisors play an extremely important role in this sector; they issue EnerGuide ratings for new homes, advise individuals and organizations on how to invest in energy efficient operations that will lower utility bills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help to improve overall energy performance to combat the effects of climate change.

Training Incentives Available

Incentives are available to residents of Alberta to learn new skills and develop technical capacity across a variety of subjects in energy efficiency. Attendees of selected NorQuest CECT courses will receive up to 20% off, with the incentive being applied directly at the time of course registration.
