This online program is a highly condensed version of the standard Certified Energy Manager Program. It is designed for professionals with a P.E. or at least five years of experience in the energy management or energy efficiency fields.
Over five days, the instructor will review many aspects of energy management, including current strategies, principles, and best practices, and available systems and technologies. The fast-paced program focuses on the “where to” and “how to” optimize energy use and costs within non-residential buildings. By understanding the fundamental principles, experienced professionals finish the program with actionable ideas they can immediately apply in their facilities to improve profitability. The instructor reviews energy calculations and core content aligned with the CEM Body of Knowledge.
Who Should Attend
This fast-paced program assumes attendees have prior experience in the energy management field and have the ability to study and work problems offline. It is of particular value to Facility Managers, Energy Managers, Utility Employees, ESCO Employees, Energy Engineers, and Consultants. The course covers complex concepts in a condensed schedule and is of particular value for those wishing to review energy management principles and practices before taking the CEM certification exam.
