The first course will focus on navigating and applying the code. It will last for 30 minutes and will outline how the energy code is structured and provides an overview of the code.
Next, there will be a four-hour, contractor/installer-specific course. The course sets out to simplify “Division B, Parts 2-10.” It will detail systems, components, and equipment for energy performance efficiency. It also clarifies the prescriptive path, trade-off path, performance path, and tiered building performance compliance, states the CSA Group.
Lastly, the final course is created for designers. The four-hour course targets designers, modellers, engineers, and architects. The course also provides recommendations and tips from design experts in the buildings and energy efficiency sectors.
