Ontario Focused Curriculum!

Proud CanSIA Member
Previously, the same 40 hour course was available only in the US. 
For the first time it is being offered in Ontario, with a focus on 
the Canadian Electrical Code and regulatory issues related to 
Ontario's microFIT and FIT.

Why travel hours south for more costly US courses and incur added travel / accommodation expenses? Receive similar training locally, with an Ontario focused curriculum!
