EMIT - Energy Manager in Training
The Energy Manager In Training (EMIT) designation is for the many talented energy professionals out there, that can demonstrate technical strengths by passing the Certified Energy Manager® (CEM®) test but do not have the necessary credentials.
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.
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.
