Low Carbon Training Foundations Course 

Canada’s green buildings sector is growing, and the number of green building sector jobs is expected to triple by 2030. This means professionals prepared with low-carbon knowledge will have a distinct advantage in this growing job market. The question is: where can you learn the basics and kickstart your low-carbon career?  

The first of its kind in Canada, the Low Carbon Training Foundations course will equip the people and businesses involved in the design, construction and operation of green buildings, with a common language and understanding of low-carbon strategies and solutions.
