This popular two-day program is designed to update Certified Energy Managers (CEM) on the most current energy-related trends, strategies, best practices, technologies, and regulations. If you are an existing CEM that needs a refresher, or a lapsed CEM that needs CEUs to get re-certified, this course is a great solution.

All attendees are CEM "graduates," which elevates the interactions between attendees and enhances networking opportunities. There is no homework or exam, which in turn makes this one of AEE's most "fun" programs to attend.

Attendance is limited to ensure an optimal exchange of ideas and best practices between participants.

Virtual Classroom Experience 

Virtual Attendees can participate in a fully interactive, instructor-led classroom environment from the comfort of your own home or office. An ideal solution for those with travel, time, or budget restrictions. 

Each participant will receive an electronic copy of the Annual Update for CEMs Training Manual.

What You Need To Attend Virtually
