    On-Demand

    0.6 CEU | 6.0 PDH | 1.2 AEE Credits

    Course Description:

    The Performance Contracting & Funding Professional On-Demand Training provides fundamental knowledge across four core principles and practices specific to performance contracting and financing. These include:

    • Traditional Financial Arrangements & Terminology
    • Performance Contracts
    • Advanced Financial Evaluation of Financing and PC Options
    • Advanced Presentation Techniques

    Each section is divided into subsections that align with the certification program's Body of Knowledge. The instructor provides more value than only preparing individuals to take the associated exam. He brings all candidates to a base level of understanding across a wide variety of PCF topics.

    Who is the PCF On-Demand Program For?

    The short answer is anyone that is focused and committed to a self-study learning format. Professionals interested in, or actively performing performance contracting or funding projects will gain the most. But it is also useful for entry-level candidates or individuals that interact with energy, ESCO, or banking professionals during their daily work. 

    Once registered for the program, you will gain access to the program videos and digital materials to study at your own pace. You will have access to the program materials for six months from the initial date of registration. 

    There are four videos that make up this on-demand course. In order to receive a certificate of completion, you are required to view all of the videos. The total run time for the entire program is approximately five hours, plus another hour to review the digital materials. Participants can go back and re-watch any of the videos during their six months of access.

    • Part 1 - Introduction and Financial Arrangements (1:09)
    • Part 2 - Performance Contracting (1:30)
    • Part 3 - Advanced Financial Analysis (0:51)
    • Part 4 - Advanced Presentation Techniques (0:39)

    After registering for this on-demand class, to submit questions to the instructor, please enter them on the Discussion Board (will be visible after registration is processed). Once a month, the instructor will schedule a Zoom live Q&A session. 

    At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

    • Learn how to reduce the sales cycles and avoid pitfalls, which can unnecessarily delay projects by months, or even kill a project.
    • Understand how important new financing options will enable you to implement projects, that can save energy and related expenses.
    • A must for ESCO participants, facility managers and anyone who uses financing and/or performance contracts.
    • Learn about new financing solutions and how to compare side-by-side.
    • Learn the best practices approach to achieving your project goals, and steps to take in order to avoid common pitfalls. For people on both sides of a contract, this information can help you save millions in delays, lost projects or legal expenses.

    On-Demand

    2.4 CEU

    Course Description

    The Certified Energy Manager On-Demand Training Program offers the full-length version of the CEM program (20+ training hours), through pre-recorded sessions from multiple instructors. Participants will also receive an electronic copy of the workbook to prepare for their exam.

    The instructor teaches participants energy relationships and the equations and calculations that govern them. As a CEM, it is easier to optimize a system when these fundamentals are understood. When used as a certification exam preparation tool, the on-demand program effectively prepares participants for the CEM exam because they are more comfortable performing energy-related equations. 

    Course Accessibility: 6-Months

    During the six-month access period, you can stream the videos at any time, from anywhere you have an internet connection. There will also be a monthly Q&A session with the instructor for participants to clarify any points presented in the program.

    This training program is only intended for US participants. This does not qualify you for the International CEM Certification Exam.

    Who is the CEM On-Demand Program For?

    The short answer is anyone that is focused and committed to a self-study learning format. Professionals interested in, or actively performing energy management and energy efficiency-related work will gain the most. But it is also useful for entry-level candidates or individuals that interact with energy professionals during their daily work. 

    Monthly Live Q&A

    While taking the on-demand CEM course you can attend a once-a-month live 1-hour Zoom Q&A session during which one of the instructors will answer questions.
