My AEE Story
I became aware of the Association of Energy Engineers in the early 90’s through some of my colleagues in the energy auditing field. They highly recommended the certification courses and noted how AEE has long led the industry in providing training and certifications in energy efficiency. Once I went through the Certified Energy Manager course, I new I had found my home. The AEE courses are directed at timely topics that are important to industry. I have found the instructors to be extremely knowledgeable in their field and they have the ability to present the material to reach students at any level of experience. In my twenty years of involvement with AEE, I have gone through many of their courses earning multiple certifications. I have even had the opportunity to develop course content and serve as an instructor. The most enjoyable part has been the many people I have come to know around the globe as fellow students, instructors, members, and volunteers to AEE.
