The Advanced Building Science certification training course is the foundation and prerequisite for ENERGY STAR for New Homes, and the CHBA Net Zero certification courses. It is an introduction to the principles behind energy-efficient construction. It’s a must-attend for those currently or looking at using our labeling programs. It’s great for new staff, suppliers who need to understand high-performance home building, and those who could use a building science refresher. The Carbon Series will cover several topics, including but not limited to Operational Carbon, Embodied Carbon, and beyond, and is well suited for designers, manufacturers, builders, renovators, utilities, and other stakeholders. The workshops will examine the technical opportunities and challenges we are aware of today and learn from case studies in action.
