Comprehensive 5-Day Training Program for Energy Managers - International

Preparatory Course for the Certified Energy Manager International Certification

This seminar provides an in- depth, comprehensive learning and problem-solving forum for those who want a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction techniques and strategies, as well as serving as a preparatory course of instruction for energy professionals preparing to sit for AEE's Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) examination.

Program of Study

The program begins by examining the basic fundamentals within all key areas of energy management. From there, the instructors systematically move to a “working level” knowledge of the specific principles and techniques needed to really get the job done. This approach has been designed to fulfill the needs of professionals who seek a broader and more detailed learning experience than can be provided in AEE’s shorter courses. In five days, you can gain the knowledge and confidence it takes to effectively apply state-of-the-art principles of energy management, and to achieve control over energy costs in your organization — whether you’re responsible for managing a single facility or developing an energy management program for multiple corporate facilities, government buildings, etc. This program has been completed by thousands of professionals since its inception in 1994.
