BEFORE YOU REGISTER
Hawaii Energy is the ratepayer-funded conservation and efficiency program for Hawaii, Honolulu and Maui counties administered by Leidos Engineering, LLC under contract with the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission. The tuition sponsorship for this certification course is limited to any Hawaii resident who lives and works in one of these counties.
The Certified Energy Manager 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. The CEM Body of Knowledge can be referenced at: http://aeecenter.org/cembok
Hawaii Energy will host two events to be held in the following locations:
HONOLULU: February 24 - 28, 2020 | Honolulu, HI | Sheraton Princess Kaiulani

To be approved for the Hawai‘i Energy tuition subsidy and take the training, you must have at least one year’s experience in the sales and or service of energy efficient equipment, or operating/supporting the facility of a Honolulu, Hawaii or Maui Counties electric utility rate payer. Resume will be requested after registration is processed and is subject to verification by Hawai‘i Energy. Those who do not meet this requirement will receive refunds for any monies paid. Additional requirements apply for taking the certification examination; see below for details.
Tuition assistance is strictly limited to those who live and work in Honolulu, Maui and Hawai‘i counties.
Attendees are encouraged to complete a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) Exam Application or Energy Manager in Training (EMIT) Exam Application 3-4 weeks prior to taking the exam. Exam fee is included in price of registration.
If an applicant doesn’t meet one of the CEM eligibility criteria, you may still apply for the Energy Manager In-Training certification, EMIT. The EMIT certification is valid for six years, which allows applicants time to meet the full CEM certification eligibility requirements. Anyone who misses the 3-week deadline for the application submission may still take the exam, but will need to complete an application waiver form on exam day and then submit the CEM or EMIT application at a later date. All participants are encouraged to submit the application ahead of time so they can be pre-approved for the certification.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Crystal Xiong [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Participants will earn 3.2 CEU | 32 PDH | 6.4 AEE Credits for completing this program.
For registrations cancelled 8 days or more prior to the program date, the full registration fee less a $100 service charge will be refunded ($395). For registrations cancelled 7 days or less, the full registration fee ($495) shall be assessed and no refund will be made. No shows will result in forfeiting of the registration fee and no refund will be made.
