The Canadian Institute for Energy Training (CIET) has entered into a partnership with Energy Efficiency Alberta to provide a series of energy-related training sessions from February 2018 through March 2019. This partnership will bring accessible and affordable training to residents of Alberta who want to increase their capacity to understand, engage in, manage, and measure the performance of energy efficiency projects.

Eleven training sessions have already been offered in February-March 2018. Close to 200 Albertans participated in these sessions offered across the province.

Energy Efficiency Alberta intends to cover part of the cost (up to 50%) of CIET training for Alberta residents until March 31, 2019.

This survey is a key tool used by CIET in planning when, where and which training to offer in Alberta to ensure that energy efficiency training meets the needs and expectations of Albertans.

Completing the survey should take 5-10 minutes.

We thank you very much in advance for your kind contribution and help.
