The Clean Energy Institute of GPEKS delivers renewable energy facilitated courses that lead to a certificate. Most of these courses are delivered in an e-learning (distance learning) format for Project Feasibility Analysis On Line courses.
The facilitated courses are typically only offered once a year. See our calendar to make sure you register for your course in time. Some more courses might be added during the year especially when we have a waiting list for a course.
Please note that facilitated courses only offer a limited amount of spots.
Delivered via a distance education approach, the certificate courses impart participants with the essential skills and knowledge to conduct a feasibility study that will enable real-world clients to decide whether or not to proceed with a potential renewable energy project. Participants will learn:
Each facilitated distance e-learning certificate of proficiency requires
successful completion of these 2 blocks:
The courses are facilitated by subject matter experts and practitioners. Successful participants will receive a Certificate of completion or proficiency and go on to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy solutions. Note that the Clean Energy Institute's project feasibility analysis courses do not teach how to install or maintain a renewable energy system.

Module CEF102 is now available as a stand-alone course and is a four week long prerequisite to completing the full program and obtaining the Certificate of Proficiency. It will be required when one wants to enter into our Real World Project Studies: courses ending with IP or TP. When taken as a stand-alone course, participants have 4 weeks to complete it.
CEF101 is offered at a very low cost (CAD $10 in April 2016) which covers admin cost to handle the registration process. CEF101 is not facilitated and is not accredited for the feasibility certification process. With CEF101, people are completely on their own and get no feedback, access to discussion forum or interactive conference call. CEF101 only includes multiple choice exam questions and certificate of completion for those who pass the exam.
The CEF102 Course (CAD $200 as of April 2016) includes both essay and multiple choice exam questions and 2 one hour conferences (one on week 2 and one on week 4 of the CEF102 Course module)
All the programs that lead to a certificate of Proficiency below are now offered in 2 parts: Theory (General Introduction, Theory on the technology) and Real Projet Feasibility Studies - Two required - (either 2 Team Projects - CEF1X2TP , 2 Individual Projects - CEF1X2IP, or one of each).
For example the Certificate of Proficiency Program CEF130 is broken down into:
CEF102: - Clean Energy Project Feasibility Analysis Framework
