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. 

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.
