Bring your WETT manual and CSA B365 to all the WETT courses that you take.
The “Woodburning” course is based on “case studies”. The exam is based on your knowledge of the WETT manual and CSA B365, even though we do not review the manual and CSA B365 thoroughly in this course.

Please, if you take any WETT training, after you get certified, please review the WETT manual, CSA B365, Building codes, etc., before coming to class. We cannot review everything that you learned in previous courses and still have the time to carry on with the new course you are taking. It’s not fair to the rest of the participants to have to start over.


If you are taking the SITE course, please review chapter 14 in the WETT manual as well as chapter 4 especially the building code references to masonry in 9.21 towards the back of the chapter. Please review as well chapter 9, especially the building code references to fireplaces in 9.22 towards the back of the chapter. 


If you are attending a SITE Comprehensive course, please review the WETT manual and CSA B365 ahead of time.
By the time you take this course, you should be familiar with sheilding and clearances, etc.


NOTE: In order to attain WETT certification as a chimney sweep, the 3 day code compliance, 2 day woodburning, 1 day Site Basic and 2 day chimney sweep courses are required along with 2 years of industry experience. If you don’t have the experience, you can still take the courses but you will not receive the WETT certification until you get the experience.
If you are an installer or sales person and don’t do chimney sweeping,  the 3 day code compliance, 2 day woodburning and 1 day Site Basic courses are required along with 2 years of industry experience. If you don’t have the experience, you can still take the courses but you will not receive the WETT certification until you get the experience.
If you are a home inspector, the 3 day code compliance, 2 day woodburning and 1 day Site Basic courses are required along with 2 years of industry experience. If you have been inspecting for 2 years, and have inspected 30 solid fuel appliances in that time, that counts as your required experience.
If you don’t have the experience, you can still take the courses but you will not receive the WETT certification until you get the experience.
Everything you have done in the past with regards to Solid Fuel burning counts towards your 2 years of experience

You can bring your Declaration form with you and hand it in at the end of the SITE Basic course and I will forward it on to WETT Inc –

Do not send me your declaration form, you can bring it with you but do not send to me !!!!!!!

Your WETT dues go to WETT Inc, please do not send them to me


Please bring a calculator, note pad and pen/pencil to class.

All courses are tentatively scheduled until we have enough people registered to put them on

The WETT exams are all “OPEN BOOK”. That is why we would like for you to get your manuals ahead of time and review them before you come to class. That way not only are you prepared for the exam but also for the classroom discussions. Homework is part of the course, the less you know, the more reading you need to do.

Please send in your registration and deposit so that we can send you your manuals. The exams are open book. Be prepared.

Send in the registration form found at the top of the “course description” page along with your deposit

Bring your WETT manual and CSA B365 to all the WETT courses that you take.
The “Woodburning” course is based on “case studies”. The exam is based on your knowledge of the WETT manual and
CSA B365 even though we do not review the manual and CSA B365 thoroughly in this course.

Bringing your Code Compliance course workbooks may help too.
