Certified Energy Manager On-Demand Training


*Please note, for all certification preparation training programs, an additional fee is due when submitting your certification application to take the exam.

About this Program

An on-demand training program. Stream 24 hours of pre-recorded presentations and associated workbooks and study at your pace.

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 a physical 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. The CEM Body of Knowledge can be referenced at:

Access to Materials

Enrollment opens on a weekly basis. You gain access to the course materials for six months.

Certification Program

This training program prepares attendees to take the Certified Energy Manager® (CEM®) exam. Please review the requirements for certification here. A separate certification and application fee applies.

Attendees can select one of two options to apply for the certification and sit the CEM® exam.

  1. The attendee can choose to take the exam after an on-site CEM training program. These programs are held worldwide throughout the year. Visit the AEE website for a list of exam dates and contact AEE to register for an exam.
  2. Alternatively, the attendee can choose to schedule and take the exam online through remote proctoring.


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. At the end of the CEM Basics Program, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss energy supplies and energy management,
  • Understand energy-related terminology, relationships, and basic energy concepts.
  • Conduct energy surveys and present cost-effective improvement ideas.
  • Know how to expand their role in energy management and gain additional resources to be effective energy managers.

Instructor Value

Only instructors with greater than 20 years of experience in the industry teach this program. They present the latest practices, strategies, and theories, while leading discussions in an open, interactive environment.  In each topic covered, the instructors focus on the most “useful” and “proven” activities that are the most significant value to attendees.
