What is WETT?

W.E.T.T. stands for Wood Energy Transfer Technology Inc., a non-profit training and educational association dedicated to promoting the safe and efficient use of wood-burning systems in Canada.

In carrying out its mandate to promote safety and efficiency effectiveness, WETT maintains the Wood Energy Technical Training Program and acts as the national registrar for certified professionals. The wood-burning industry, insurance companies, municipal building inspectors, fire officials and government agencies recognize WETT training and certification.

What does it mean to be WETT certified?

To be certified by WETT means that the professional has completed the necessary training programs and has declared a minimum of at least 80 weeks of related field experience. Once certified, the professional agrees to abide by WETT's strict Code of Ethics. To maintain certification, certification holders must complete continuing education requirements and renew their membership annually.
To have full assurance that your wood-burning appliance is installed safely and in accordance with building and fire code requirements, a WETT-trained professional should be consulted. Safety is paramount, and wood-burning appliances are manufactured to work safely and efficiently when they are installed, used and maintained properly. Many insurance companies in Canada require an inspection by a WETT-trained professional before issuing insurance. In addition, many retailers will insist that when wood-burning appliances are sold they must be professionally installed (WETT Certified).
A certificate holder will protect the rights and safety of others and use reasonable skill and judgment while engaged in the practice of wood energy technical work in accordance with the terms and conditions of wett certification.

A certificate holder will
not knowingly contravene any federal, provincial or municipal law, regulation or by-law relating to the sale, installation, inspection or maintenance of woodburning systems.

A certificate holder will not knowingly sign or issue a false or misleading certificate, report or other document.

A certificate holder will not make a false, exaggerated or misleading statement as to the scope or nature of the technical, inspection or advisory work provided.
