Energy Lite Online Training Program

Energy Lite was a 14-module virtual (English language) training program delivered at a leisurely pace over a number of weeks by subject matter experts intimate with the workings of health care facilities.

The sessions provided the basics of health care energy management to those responsible for facility management best practices including hospital and long-term care staff, energy and operations managers, engineering/facilities staff, and others.

The Energy Lite training course was flexible to the demands and needs of attendees and was designed to present the most popular elements of sound energy management practices in engaging one-hour training sessions.

The last training course was successfully completed in 2020.
