Energy Advisor Foundation Exam Study Package (Canadian) PDF



If you know your way around the industry and have a background in building science, this PDF self guided study package is for you. If you are brand new to the industry with little experience in the residential construction industry our Energy Advisor Foundation Exam Preparation is where you need to begin.

Package Contents

The Foundation Exam Study Package consists of the study guides and practice/challenge exams. It covers the main competency categories for the Foundation Level:

1. Construction Technology
Explore building science and its importance to constructing effective building envelopes and building durable homes.

2. Construction Math
Math is the language of construction. It's important for accuracy, efficiency and safety to make sure the work is done correctly. The aim of this course is to help the learner develop an understanding of how arithmetic, algebra, geometry and conversions relate to construction.

3. Plans Reading
This course is a comprehensive overview of construction drawings, ideal for those with little or no experience. By the end, you will be able to use house plans to find trade information and perform simple material take offs. Course topics also include an overview of the design process, architectural and engineering scales, floor plans and elevations.

4. High Performance Housing
High Performance Housing builds on Construction Technology and introduces concepts and techniques of energy efficiency in retrofit and new construction projects. Occupant behaviour baseloads impact the overall energy use in a house and affect the sizing of renewable energy systems.

Review the study guides and then take the practice/challenge exams as many times as you want.
