Practical Energy and Advanced Knowledge for Buildings (PEAK/Buildings) is an updating and streamlining of the BERM program.
The program is part-time. The time commitment for each course will be 30 – 40 hours over a six-week period for each course.
 Here are some answers to commonly asked questions:
·         Admission to the program usually follows from an in-person or phone meeting with the prospective student. There are no pre-requisites; we simply make an effort to make sure the program or course is a good fit with the student’s needs. Successful students have included those with technical, construction, or business backgrounds and personal interest.
·          Students who successfully  complete the PEAK – Buildings program are awarded a professional development/continuing education certificate from Douglas College.
·        The format of the program is as follows: The initial course is online (interactive, self-paced, instructor contact by email, video conference and website); The five core courses are all hybrid: partially online, on campus every other week at the New Westminster campus.
·         The student has to be legally in Canada. Because it is a part-time, continuing education program, it does not usually qualify for a student visa.
The attached document contains some additional information about the PEAK courses and the program.
