Course Description

The Energy Efficiency Practitioner (EEP™) Training Program is designed to provide attendees a concise, but comprehensive overview of practices for improving energy management and energy efficiency in buildings and across facilities. Many energy professionals use this program to develop their background knowledge before embarking on a path to the Certified Energy Manager® (CEM®) or Business Energy Professional (BEP) certifications.

Who Should Attend

AEE’s EEP® certification provides international credibility among energy management, sustainable and clean energy communities. Attendees of this program have included young energy professionals, newly qualified energy engineers, or individuals recently promoted to energy managers. It also includes non-energy professionals looking to gain an insight into energy management theories and practices, such as executives, financial executives, operations managers, architects, and consultants.
