Low Carbon Training for Engineering Professionals

The low-carbon economy is experiencing exponential growth, aligning with Canada’s pledge to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. To address this surging demand, we need a highly skilled workforce trained in low carbon.  

The Climate Risk Institute (CRI) and Engineers Canada have developed a specialized building course designed for engineers looking to strengthen their knowledge, practical skills, and collaborative decision making  to effectively contribute to low-carbon buildings and retrofit projects.  

Discover the Low Carbon Training for Engineering Professionals, a course crafted by a team of industry experts to address knowledge gaps and meet the evolving requirements of Canada’s low-carbon building sector. 

Benefits, Impacts and Facts

It’s free! 

There is no charge for the Low Carbon Training for Engineering Professionals because it was created to help meet a growing need and maintain Canada’s leadership in low carbon. When the building sector thrives, Canada thrives. 

Demand is high! 

The economy, building codes, and investor expectations are changing quickly to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by Canada’s low-carbon future.  

That means the building sector needs more professionals ready with the right skills and knowledge as the demand for low carbon buildings and retrofits grows.  

About the training

The course equips engineers with the skills needed for collaborative decision-making, design, construction, and operation, along with critical knowledge related to the growing demand for low-carbon buildings with specialized topics, including implications for Indigenous and other equity, deserving groups. The course also provides exposure to new technologies, materials, tools and approaches to equip engineers with the knowledge necessary to implement low-carbon initiatives in their professional day to day. 

While this course was primarily designed for engineers, we have implemented mechanisms to enable all infrastructure practitioners, regardless of their backgrounds, to successfully complete the program.
