CHBA is delivering this NRCan funded “Towards Net Zero Renos” project to Regina, SK and is looking to build capacity throughout the home building construction industry to respond to demand for deep energy retrofits, Net Zero Energy, and Net Zero Energy Ready renovations. The scope of existing building stock is not only expansive but an increasing focal point for energy and emission reductions.
This Net Zero Renos Bootcamp offers highly intensive CHBA Net Zero training for those eager to be involved in this growing sector. The Bootcamp provides not only a 2-half day online delivery of the Advanced Building Science training course, but also the full CHBA Net Zero Builder and CHBA Net Zero Renovator curriculum in 2 packed (in person) days! In addition, the course includes an introduction and application module on use of the Integrated Design Process in a Part 9 renovation setting.
Pre-requisite – The Net Zero Renos Bootcamp will build on the foundation of the pre-requisite Advanced Building Science (ABS) training.
