The course is taught by an experienced trainer with years of industry expertise.

Why Become An NRCan Registered Energy Advisor?

  • Canadians are becoming more energy-conscious and look to energy advisors to help them lower their energy consumption and energy bills.
  • Builders must keep up with evolving building codes, and require energy advisors to assist them in meeting new energy codes.
  • NRCan and utilities have numerous initiatives, such as rebates, that only energy advisors registered to deliver ERS v.15 audits can advise on.
  • Enegy advisors work with an SO, but are ultimately free to be in charge of their own time.

What one of our students has to say about our training:


I was very pleased to receive a 'PASS' yesterday on the Foundations exam. Going forward next week with the EA course exam prep feels much better knowing that it's actually possible to realize my goal of becoming a Home Energy Advisor.  I can honestly say that part of my success so far is attributed to taking the exam prep course with BSG. It was a comfortable and laid back approach to a rather daunting amount of information that is required to know.  My two weak areas that were recognized are Math and computers. Rick made sure that before I left that he personally went over the Math with me so I could practice at my own pace. And as far as being comfortable with computers and all that will be necessary; the course helps as well but doing what is necessary to learn on your own is required.  My confidence is growing at every stage. Half way there! Thanks BSG.
