Certification Renewal Credit Requirements have been updated as of January 1, 2024. Please see changes in red below.

概述

每个获得认证的专业人士都必须在每个续订期获得继续教育学分 (CEU) 或专业发展时间 (PDH)。  总共需要 10 个续订积分.  AEE does not maintain a record of your continuing education in the interim. You must maintain record of continuing education and complete a recertification form at the time of your renewal.  You will reach your recertification date on the fourth January 1st or July 1st following the date of certification.  Professional credits for recertification should be accumulated during the three-year renewal period for each renewal cycle.  为获得您的认证而参加的研讨会不适用于您的续订学分。 *所有认证续订均需经过 30 天的续订处理。

可作为认证更新积分的活动

    • Example 2: Had my CMVP for 3 years = 0 credits (This is not the same as membership)

    • Example 1: I took a 5-day CEM course in Florida. This course is worth 3.3 CEUs = 6.6 AEE credits.
    • 示例 2:我在一所重点大学上了一门能源管理课程,该课程价值 3 个大学学分 = 6 个 AEE 学分。
    • Example 3: I took an energy auditing course and received 20 approved PDHs = 4 AEE credits.

Instructors may only count the same class one time per renewal cycle.

测量和验证 (M&V) 计划(仅限 CMVP 更新)

能源会议出席

  • 如果一个节目颁发出席证书,学分将基于节目分配的内容。如果没有颁发证书,学分将基于记录的小时数。
    *参加贸易展览或博览会不会获得学分。

    • Example 1: Attended an AEE show. A certificate of attendance will be emailed. AEE East Energy Conference = 0.8 CEUs = 1.6 AEE credits / AEE West Energy Conference = 0.8 CEUs = 1.6 AEE credits / AEE World Energy Conference = 1.2 CEUs = 2.4 AEE credits

      • Example 1: VP of AEE in 2022 and President of AEE in 2023 = 2 AEE Credits
      • AEE's Scholarship Committee Chair in 2022 = 1 AEE Credit

The AEE Certification board will not pre-approve courses or course providers.  It is requested that course providers present certified professionals with the above information needed for documentation as proof of continuing education.  The decision of what course or activity is to be submitted AEE for credit is up to the judgment of the certified professional.  Continuing education which enhances the professional attribute of the certified professional and is beneficial in an area of practice will be considered by the Board for those who are audited.  If chosen for audit in a random selection, the certified professional will be expected to provide proof of documentation for the CEUs claimed.  Relevant courses presented by an accredited university or college, or nonprofit organization are generally accepted for credit.

In-Training Certification

Renewal credits are not required to maintain in-training certification. To upgrade your certification, you must meet the certification education/experience requirements and submit the certification application by the in-training certification expiration date.

In-training certifications are non-renewable. If a candidate does not meet the requirements to upgrade the in-training designation, the candidate will need to resubmit to the certification process and successfully meet the criteria for certification by personal data information and examination.

Retired Certification Status

A certified professional upon retiring will be designated as Retired. will no longer be required to pay renewal fees and will no longer be listed in our directory of actively practicing certified professionals. No further reporting is necessary except to notify the Certification Renewal Director.

如果退休的认证专业人士希望将认证状态从退休逆转为有效,则退休的专业人士需要按照认证恢复要求遵循两个选项之一来恢复认证。

Certification Reinstatement Requirements

失效的认证专业人士有两种恢复的选择:

  • Acquire make-up points at a cumulative total equal to 3.5 per year for every year since date of expiration. This option is available one time only. (Does not apply to ENAC recognized lapsed certifications) or,
  • Resubmit to the certification process and successfully meet the criteria for certification by personal data information and examination.

Legacy certifications can only be reinstated by credits. Retaking the exam is not available.

Reinstatement credits are determined by the year that your certification expired. Please contact the Certification Director to find out your exact renewal credit requirements.  对于所有计划,如果您的认证已过期超过 3 个更新周期(9 年),您将需要参加并通过考试才能恢复。

Voluntary Suspension

Individuals who are out on leave from employment for reasons such as active military duty, disability, or parental leave may voluntarily suspend their certification and reactivate within three (3) years from the current date of expiration. Certified professionals must contact AEE in writing prior to the certification expiration date to request the suspension and include supporting documentation confirming the reason for the leave request.

 

A certified professional should notify AEE immediately should he or she become fully or partially disabled and unable to carry out the full responsibilities of the certification earned. Subsequently, he or she should advertise and contract to undertake only those capabilities and requirements of the certification earned which he or she is able to completely fulfill. AEE reserves the right to proceed on a case-by-case basis to place any AEE certification as inactive.
