This is a two-day train-the-trainers session that is free of charge and by invitation only.

At this Train-the-Trainer session, in addition to getting updated Energy Step Code information and training material, and an opportunity to polish training skills, the trainers will be trained and equipped to deliver two workshops to help their building communities master Step 3.

Space is limited. Efforts will be made to ensure good representation geographically and from leading builders, designers, energy advisers, consultants, trade contractors, municipal officials, NGOs and others who have the ability to influence their audience/communities.
