Ottawa, ON — Free training is available for skilled trades professionals who are looking to polish up on some of their low-carbon specific skills.
The Canadian government provided $7.8 million in funding for the new Building Skills for Climate Change: Low-Carbon Training Program.
This program aims to upskill building professionals, including architects, engineers, contractors, and owners and operators. The program will cover five competencies to support low-carbon new construction and retrofits. This includes transition planning for deep carbon retrofits, addressing environment, social and governance through low-carbon buildings, the role of the integrated design processes, life cycle assessments, and energy modelling and management.
