Government Focused Certified Energy Manager Training Program


*Please note, for all certification preparation training programs, an additional fee is due when submitting your certification application to take the exam.

About this Program

This program follows the same core materials as the Certified Energy Manager Training Program (noted below), but it also covers US government energy programs and project needs, such as how to understand energy codes, federal legislation, and government policy, and it includes a detailed overview of the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP).

The primary focus of any CEM training program is “optimizing” energy use and costs within non-residential buildings.  This course explains how energy is purchased and then used in various energy systems (HVAC, Lighting, Motors, Boilers, etc.) throughout a building.  This “holistic” approach helps the professional 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. The CEM Body of Knowledge can be referenced at:


    This program is held over 5 Days.
