BC Energy Step Code: A Primer for Selling Energy-Efficient New Homes is a new self-paced online course worth three accredited PDP hours in which REALTORS® will improve their knowledge of the BC Energy Step Code. The BC Energy Step Code sets levels, or “steps”, of performance requirements for new construction, and is a growing deciding factor for your clients when buying new homes.

Local home construction experts and course author, Peter Sundberg of City Green Solutions, guide Realtors through interactive elements, video explanations, and knowledge retention exercises to help ensure that by the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • explain the role that the BC Energy Step Code plays in aligning with the national and provincial strategies and pathways to net zero ready new construction,
  • identify the key features and benefits of high-performance homes and buildings,
  • educate clients about the BC Energy Step Code and more effectively sell energy-efficient homes.

The primary goal of this course is to enhance your knowledge of how to assist your clients and protect their best interests during the home buying or home selling experience, particularly around energy efficiency.

This Project is made possible with funding from the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia.
