Darren Vaux is one of western Canada’s leading experts on solar heating.

Besides sharing his knowledge with Camosun Plumbing and Pipe Trade students, Darren is known as the solar thermal system "go-to guy" for college and university educators. As the only trades person in Canada to hold solar heating certifications from the two largest certification bodies in North America, he is also a key education committee member for both.

“Although solar thermal energy has been used extensively in Europe, the technology is just getting started within Canada's residential construction industry,” says Darren. “Nationally, Camosun is considered an educational leader and we’ve adapted our curriculum to meet certification standards established by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners.”

Camosun’s School of Trades and Technology is leading the way, teaching new building technologies that help us leave a positive footprint on our environment.
