"I enjoyed the course in many ways and it really helped me understand the information I needed for the Foundation exam. I had pretty much zero knowledge of the requirements needed to pass the exam so I looked for a course and came across this one. They come recommended by Natural Resource Canada as a course to prep for this exam and I can see why.

I also did the payment plan option so I was able to get the course that day. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to become an Energy Advisor or in a related field."
