The City of Ottawa’s Better Homes Ottawa program is excited to offer another round of net zero training in collaboration with Homesol Buildings Solutions and the Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association

Please note: The Advanced Building Science course is a pre-requisite to the Net Zero Builder training. The Advanced Building Science needs to be successfully completed with a 75%+ score prior to taking this course.

 This training is open to Ottawa-area residential building professionals (including trades, home renovators, and home builders) and will support the City’s goals of increasing the rate of retrofits across Ottawa’s small residential building stock. Those who complete all sections of the training will be featured on the Better Homes Ottawa website.

The products/materials/equipment to achieve Net Zero/Ready are now more widely available across Canada, and more CHBA Qualified Net Zero Energy Advisors are ready and able to help builders design climate-specific packages to address each project’s needs.

In this course participants learn the latest developments on approaches to Net Zero/Ready Homes focused on optimizing performance and costs. Attendees will gain insight on Net Zero/Ready design principles, equipment options, emerging technologies, and construction practices. This course reflects the advancements in technology and innovations in the Canadian housing industry.
