The Certified Energy Manager® (CEM®) Training Program focuses on optimizing energy use and costs within non-residential buildings. It explains how energy is purchased and then used in various energy systems throughout a building, such as HVAC, Lighting, Motors, and Boilers. This holistic approach helps energy professionals see the big picture and then learn how to optimize systems to reduce costs, improve profits, and increase occupant satisfaction. Most course participants leave with actionable ideas they can immediately apply in their facilities to improve profitability.

      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.

      On-site participants will have the opportunity to take the certification exam in-person on the final day of the training. AEE recommends submitting the CEM or EMIT application at least 30 days prior to the seminar date.

      Virtual attendees can now take the CEM® exam online through remote proctoring. Exam times are scheduled on an individual basis. To schedule your exam, you must first submit the CEM or EMIT applications and select virtual proctoring. ProctorU will then contact you within 1-2 weeks to schedule your exam.


        The CEM program is of particular value to Facility Managers, Energy Managers, Utility Employees, ESCO Employees, and Consultants. The course covers complex concepts. However, our experienced instructors explain so that anyone can learn and find value. Attendees have included individuals with diverse business, industrial and government backgrounds, such as non-engineers, engineers, sustainability professionals, and lawyers.

        Instructor Value

        This program offers a premium experience with two instructors. Both instructors have greater than 20 years of experience in the industry. They present the latest practices, strategies, and theories, while leading discussions in an open, interactive environment. You also spend valuable time connecting with and learning from other program attendees. In each topic covered, the instructors focus on the most “useful” and “proven” activities that an energy manager should pursue to improve profits. View all CEM instructors here.
