Empower Your Career with Energy Advisor Training: Become a Certified Expert in Energy Efficiency

Are you interested in joining an exciting career where you can help people learn how to improve the energy efficiency of their homes? That’s where Registered Energy Advisors come in. In Canada, almost 250,000 new homes are built each year, plus there are millions of existing older residential buildings in each province and territory. New construction is one of Canada’s largest employers and the renovation industry generates over $60 billion each year in revenue.


Since Canada has started working towards net-zero by 2050, there are numerous government rebate and loan programs available for eligible energy-efficient home retrofits. As more and more building codes are brought up to modern-day standards that include energy-efficient measures, Registered Energy Advisors are more crucial than ever before.


What Are Registered Energy Advisors?


A Registered Energy Advisor is licensed by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to conduct home energy audits in Canada using the EnerGuide Rating System.

The EnerGuide Rating System is a nationally recognized rating standard that provides homeowners with customized information about the energy performance of their homes.

Energy Advisors evaluate home energy performance and develop custom reports with impartial upgrade recommendations to help homeowners save energy, improve comfort and reduce GHG emissions. Energy Advisors also provide homeowners with guidance on how to access available rebates and loans to help offset the upfront costs of home energy retrofits.
