Manitoba Environmental Industries Association (MEIA), in collaboration with Red River College Polytech, is pleased to announce the launch of an Energy Advisor training program.
The part-time micro-credential program was developed to meet the need for Energy Advisors (EAs) to help deliver the one million EnerGuide rating services for eligible homes in Canada, as per the federal government’s Greener Homes initiative.
The micro-credential courses are targeted for Manitobans currently working in the fields of construction, trades or engineering, to provide necessary up-skilling. The program was designed to help learners acquire the knowledge and specialized skills to get certified as an EA and pass the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) federal examination.
Once NRCan-certified, EAs can also add other NRCan services to their qualification, including EnerGuide for Multi-Unit Residential Buildings and ENERGY STAR for New Homes. Click here for downloadable information about the program.
For information and listing of NRCan Certified Service Organizations, see Sustainable Building Manitoba’s resource page here.
The EA courses are offered in a blended learning environment — a mix of online, in-person labs at RRC’s Notre Dame Campus and in-field experience (subject to Public Health guidelines). For more information, or to register now, click here.
