The Low Carbon Training Program for Construction Professionals 

The demand for low-carbon buildings and retrofits is growing with over $3.6 billion already committed to finance energy efficiency and low-carbon upgrades for large buildings.

This course enhances awareness, promotes knowledge sharing, and facilitates skill development, enabling participants to collaborate across all building sector professions to effectively deliver on in-demand low-carbon buildings.
