NZEB Training Course
This course will provide the background to the issues of energy efficiency and quality in dwellings, as well as best ways of achieving energy efficient, high-quality NZEB buildings. It will also help you to think about the ways in which you currently work and any changes which you might need to make yourself in the ways you carry out this work.
This course will introduce you to a variety of ideas which are important in the development of quality NZEB buildings. As a craftworker or construction worker, you have a very important role to play with respect to many of these.
Generally, in the building sector, the greatest barrier identified for delivery of quality NZEB buildings is a lack of knowledge rather than skills. Knowledge of the basic principles of low energy building is essential for everyone involved. Even if you have many years of experience and excellent skills, there may be some new things for you to learn about the changes in how we are building now.
