RRC, MEIA collaborate to launch Energy Advisor micro-credential

July 16, 2021
Red River College has launched an Energy Advisor program in collaboration with the Manitoba Environmental Industries Association (MEIA). Students in the 15-week micro-credential will develop the necessary skills to become certified Energy Advisors and will be eligible to pursue the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) federal examination and achieve NRCan certification. The program is offered part-time and is geared toward upskilling students who are currently working in fields such as construction, trades, or engineering. “By leveraging the in-house expertise at RRC’s dynamic research facilities — including the Building Efficiency Technology Access Centre (BETAC) — along with our partners at MEIA, we’re delivering specialized skills training to prepare Manitobans for immediate employment in the growing sector of sustainable infrastructure,” said RRC VP, Academic and Research Dr Christine Watson.
