Blue House Energy online training is serious learning, but it’s built to be cheap and cheerful. BHE online exists to help as many people as possible develop a working knowledge of building science. Our goal is to deliver quality, affordable training that helps everyone understand 
the “why” behind energy efficiency measures, and how we make (and keep) houses comfortable and healthy.

BHE online is available in Canada and US versions. Make sure you are buying the one that suits your location! (If you get the wrong version by mistake, we’ll help you sort it out.)

Each course comes with a Certificate of Achievement when you pass the final test with 70% or better. Our courses qualify for CEUs and PDCs from a variety of organizations.

Online Learning For Trades and Energy Efficiency-Related Professions

Blue House Energy online learning has several advantages:

  • You stay in your community and on the job

  • You use scenario learning that is based on real-world situations

  • All of your learning sessions can take place on your own computer or at a public library with internet access (you will need a pair of headphones)

Your success as an online learner will depend on how you:

  • Organize your time

  • Stick to a learning schedule while working

  • Stay focused on tasks

We’ve made it super easy for you to afford to take Building Science Basics or Construction Technology. You can pay in two ways: all at once, or you can buy it on a monthly subscription basis. Our 1-hour CEU courses and webinars are ferociously cheap anyway, so these are paid for upfront.

For larger organizations, we offer services that will help keep your team is on track and ensure you are getting the best return on your training investment.

If you’re a face-to-face trainer, we can work with you on a customized set of modules that will augment your class or field time, creating a blended learning program so you can give your learners the best experience possible.
