This course will review the technical, economic and regulatory aspects of effective energy management, as well as the basics of energy efficiency improvement as it relates to electrical, utility, building and combustion systems. The presentation will include updates on current topics which impact your decisions, such as implementation of the most recent federal energy legislation, new energy efficiency equipment standards for commercial buildings, building commissioning basics, and the tools required to create and implement a maximally effective and sustainable energy cost reduction program. The essentials of performing an energy audit, as well as use of practical and proven strategies for reducing energy costs will also be covered.

Designed for engineers with a minimum of 3 years' experience in energy management, this program covers the full scope of subjects addressed on the CEM examination, including problem-solving techniques oriented toward typical problems you'll encounter on the exam.

This Fast Track training course assumes significant prior experience and training in the energy management field, and serves as an effective "refresher" course for those seeking CEM certification. Individuals who feel that they may benefit from a more detailed and extensive training experience prior to sitting for the CEM examination may wish to consider AEE's live seminar, Comprehensive 5-Day Training Program for Energy Managers offered at locations throughout the continental U.S.

The designation "CEM" is a nationally recognized credential, having been adopted by a variety of entities throughout the U.S. For example the CEM was adopted by SAFE-BIDCO for its low-interest loan programs, by D.O.D. for R.F.P.'s for energy audits, and by the Mississippi Energy Department for its auditor certification program. In addition, the state of Virginia requires state agencies that spend in excess of $1 million annually to retain an agency energy manager with the CEM credential. CEM certification is also now accredited by ANSI and recognized by DOE Better Buildings.
