AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


KEVIN VIDMAR currently serves as Vice President of Energy Services for Loureiro Engineering Associates, a full service environmental, remediation, health, safety, energy, building systems, design, installation, and construction firm with offices in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Mr. Vidmar has more than 25 years of industrial experience, and has worked with over 200 manufacturing sites worldwide for the purpose of optimizing their energy reduction opportunities, including the use of Behavioral Energy Change, energy reduction through Six Sigma and Kaizen programs, as well as the more typical conservation and efficiency improvement strategies. Mr. Vidmar holds a B.S. from Miami University, and an M.S. from Vanderbilt University in Environmental and Water Resource Engineering. He is a Certified Energy Manager, a Certified Energy Auditor, and a Certified Carbon Reduction Manager.

This course is designed specially for those who can benefit from learning effective and proven energy use reduction techniques and strategies, for the purpose of achieving maximum energy cost savings. Individuals who can benefit significantly from this program include:

  • Energy engineers, managers and consultants
  • Energy auditors
  • Plant and facility engineers
  • Facility energy managers
  • Corporate, educational, institutional and government energy managers
  • ESCO professionals
  • Utility professionals
  • Performance contracting professionals
  • Organizations considering energy management options
  • Utility managers
Presented online in a series of two live 2-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide you with an understanding of Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, 5 S, Kaizen, and Behavioral Energy Change as energy cost reduction measures, and explain how to apply these programs in your organization to achieve significant energy savings.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


Organizations are increasingly realizing the power of applying systematic improvement and cultural programs for energy reduction. These programs are different from the classic energy audit based context, which would typically involve only a limited number of people. By contrast, the programs described in this training seminar...

• Six Sigma
• Kaizen
• 5 S
• Lean Manufacturing
• Behavioral Energy Change

characteristically employ a very broad group of people in a very specific and systematic way in order to reduce energy use. In fact, programs like 5 S and Behavioral Energy Change will likely involve everyone. This systematic, broader involvement makes possible both increased and longer lasting energy savings.

Buildings and facilities can use these programs to identify energy savings opportunities at all levels, including operator level -- something that can be overlooked with traditional energy audits. Very often adding just one of these programs, or even some of its core elements, can serve to bridge the gap between simply identifying opportunities and ultimately taking effective energy saving action.

The overall goal of this training course is provide you with an understanding of the basics of each of these programs, as well as to show you how to employ its specific methods -- either in part or in total -- for sustainable and increasing energy savings. You will leave the seminar with specific tools you need to start using your new knowledge, including real-world project examples and results.
