Energy Advisor Foundation Training (EAFT) Bundle
You need to know a lot about houses to be a competent Energy Advisor (EA). Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), and the Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) have created a three-step entry program for EA candidates. You must:
- Pass the Foundation Level exam
- Pass Energy Advisor exam
- Be affiliated with a service organization
(You can find out everything need to know about the process of becoming an Energy Advisor here.)The Foundation exam is tough -- so tough that the current failure rate is somewhere around 80%. It costs $150 + HST for each attempt.
Blue House Energy's Solution!
We know what it takes to be an Energy Advisor in Canada. BHE CEO, Shawna Henderson, was an R-2000 evaluator starting in the early 1990s, and was one of the first Energy Advisors for Existing Houses in the country. She sits on two working groups on Energy Retrofits led by Natural Resources Canada, and is a member of CHBA’s Net Zero Energy Renovation Working Group.
All of our training is based on CHBA’s educational benchmarks and Shawna’s long experience an Energy Advisor.
She’s got this.
Which means, Blue House Energy has a solution: our online EA Foundation Training Bundle. There are 5 courses in the bundle:
- Construction Math
- Plans Reading
- Construction Safety
- Construction Technology
- Improving Building Performance
Pass each of them, and you will be able to pass the Foundation Exam.
We’re so confident in that statement that we’re offering a guarantee:
If you fail, we’ll refund you the cost of your first attempt at the Foundation Exam.
The whole bundle will be available end April/early May. The cost will be $425 + HST, but if you pre-purchase the bundle between now and our official launch of the completed bundle, you can have it for $350 + HST.
Once you register, we will send you notice of when the courses are online, starting with an enhanced version of Construction Technology.
