Comment on our article about builder licensing changes in Alberta…

Education is the foundation of professionalism. Licensing must be accompanied by a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) education program including energy efficiency. We need every province to participate in licensing and education before the national code committee continues boosting energy efficiency, which will likely happen in the 2020 National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB). An interim change to the NECB is being considered now.
