The City of Toronto is hosting EnerQuality’s virtual Better Built Homes series (Net Zero Renovator Training) for design-build professionals in Ontario who service the Greater Toronto area. The training series is at no cost for eligible building industry professionals through the support of the City of Toronto.

Net Zero Renovator Training, presented by EnerQuality, highlights the latest approaches to net zero/net zero-ready renovations focused on ensuring customer comfort and satisfaction. Attendees will review net zero/ready design principles, equipment options, emerging technologies, construction practices and learn to identify the performance gap between “existing” homes and new net zero homes.

The series will be delivered via a live webinar format by qualified trainers. This series reflects the advancements in technology and innovations in the Canadian housing industry. Participants will receive training materials and support documents.

Requirements of each course include:

  • Attend both parts of each online training course
  • Participate in the online engagement polls
  • Take the post-course online exam with a 75% passing grade

Completion of the workshop series grants participants a certificate of completion in each of the workshops, which is the first step in allowing them, and their companies, to build to and renovate to the Net Zero standard.
