New Online Training Program for New Energy Advisor Students


An Energy Advisor (EA) conducts energy audits to help British Columbian builders and homeowners solve their energy efficiency concerns, save money, and possibly have a more comfortable, healthier home. They also help reduce the impact of home energy use on our environment. The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC offers training and certification for EAs, so you have the tools you need to deliver high-quality home energy assessments.

This Stage 1 workshop provides training on the use of the HOT2000 software which is used to model new house plans within the EnerGuide for New Houses, ENERGY STAR, and Net Zero certification programs. The course covers the responsibilities of a plan evaluator, who performs HOT2000 energy analysis of house plans, playing a key role in the quality assurance process for labelling EnerGuide, ENERGY STAR and Built Green® homes. Training is also provided on the blower door test equipment and procedures.
