Blue House Energy, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, was formed by business partners Shawna Henderson and Hal Richman as a way to follow through with their belief that ‘It’s not OK to waste energy.’ Working with homeowners and large organizations to reduce energy consumption in houses through BHE sister company, Bfreehomes Design Ltd., they have seen and heard the frustration that clients, builders, and renovators feel daily when the knowledge gap rears its head and problems arise. Blue House Energy is a key player in training for the home construction and renovation industry. Their courses are self paced, easy to access, won't take crews off job sites and will change the way you think about the building envelope, energy efficiency and online training. Their courses are rich with animations and videos clearly explain what you need to know to be successful.
Training Ontario has been created to provide you with the very best training in the residential construction industry. The online education will allow you to build the knowledge and know-how to create a better future.
