MONTREAL - The Canadian GeoExchange™ Coalition (CGC) is presenting its GeoExchange™ Installers’ Course®, Nov. 16-18, 2007, at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Alberta. The course provides training in installing geothermal heating and cooling systems.

This training is part of an ongoing initiative started in 2001 by the CGC aimed at creating a strong Canadian geoexchange industry. The installers’ training is one of four training modules developed by the CGC as part of its Global Quality GeoExchange™ Program.®

The three-day comprehensive workshop is designed for geoexchange developers, architects, manufacturers, distributors, dealers, installers, engineers, plumbers, designers, homeowners, excavators, geologists, contractors involved with HVAC, trenching/drilling, ducting, sheet metal, persons involved with environmental issues or sustainable energy, and individuals who desire a working knowledge of this technology. Representatives from public utilities, private utilities, and rural electric cooperatives may also benefit from this training.

Upon successfully passing the examination, attendees will receive a CGC Installers’ Training Certificate, which is the prerequisite to apply for CGC Accreditation for industry professionals.
