Eligibility
The prerequisites to qualify for the certification process have been designed to take into account the possible diversity of education and practical experience an individual may have. However each EMIT candidate must meet one of the following criteria:

 

Education   Experience

4-year degree in engineering or architecture
OR Professional Engineer or Registered Architect

AND Less than 3 years of experience in energy engineering or energy management
4-year degree in technology, environmental science, physics, or earth science AND Less than 4 years of experience in energy engineering or energy management
4-year degree in business (or a related field) AND Less than 5 years of experience in energy engineering or energy management
2-year energy management associate's degree AND Less than 6 years of experience in energy engineering or energy management
2-year technical associate's degree AND A minimum of 2 years of experience in energy engineering or energy management
NONE AND 4 years or more of experience in energy engineering or energy management


EMIT Maintenance
Candidates who are interested should complete a short EMIT application form and take one of the required scheduled seminar dates listed below, followed by the CEM exam.

Upon successfully passing the test, the EMIT board will review and approve the candidate's file.  Then the candidate will be mailed a certificate showing that they are an EMIT. This certificate will show the EMIT is good for six years. After the candidate fulfills the required energy management experience, it' the candidate's responsibility to then submit the CEM application and all supporting documents.  After all CEM application items are received, the CEM board will review and approve the candidate's file and issue the CEM certification.  No further exam is required. If the candidate does not meet requirements in that time, the EMIT designation will be dropped.

Exam Requirement
All CEM candidates taking the exam in the United States (only) will take the revised format CEM Certification Exam. The new format exam contains the same number of questions as previous versions, 130, and the exam duration will remain 4 hours. The new exam will not include optional sections, as in the past; rather, the exam will include questions from all 17 sections of the CEM Body of Knowledge. This differs from the international version of the CEM exam, which will still contain optional sections. You must bring a hand calculator to the exam since the CEM test does not allow computers, tablets or cell phones to be used for calculations on the test.

An intensive jobs task analysis was performed for the CEM and a weighted percentage of topics was developed for the CEM Body of Knowledge. Although a specific number of exam questions for each topic will not be provided, as it may change, the number of questions on the exam will align with the content percentages listed in the following CEM Body of Knowledge.
