Quality First™ Municipal Heat Pump Certification (Hydronic) Courses

Additional virtual and "in person" course delivery dates will be posted to our web site as confirmed.

City of Vancouver:  As of January 1, 2022, residential buildings under four stories will no longer be permitted to use Natural Gas for their heating and hot water systems under the prescriptive requirements. (This requirement can be met with electric heat pumps or electric resistance options). Gas fireplaces, cooking appliances and BBQ boxes will still be permitted.   To install a heat pump in Vancouver, you must have a Municipal Heat Pump Certification and be registered, as of July 1, 2022, as a certified heat pump installer.

Note: Presently for new construction and not retrofits. Visit the following webpages for further details:
