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 a clearer understanding of both ISO 14001 and ISO 50001, their similarities and differences, and how best to reduce energy consumption using either program. Individuals who may 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 four live 2-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide you with an understanding of both ISO 14001 and ISO 50001, their similarities and differences, and how best to reduce energy consumption using either program.

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.


Until recently, from an ISO point of view, systematic and long lasting energy reduction was intended to be achieved utilizing ISO 14001, which addresses environmental issues, and could also include energy management. However, in June of 2011, ISO published its separate Energy Standard 50001, which provides another accepted ISO methodology to be applied toward the goal of systematic energy reduction. Unlike ISO 14001, ISO 50001 solely addresses energy management, and while generally similar to 14001, ISO 50001 incorporates many differences as well as improvements.

By the end of this seminar, you will have a clear understanding of each standard's requirements, and a comprehensive understanding of how to put either to successful use for reducing energy consumption. The instructor will more focus a bit more time on ISO 50001, as this newer standard is more likely to enable further savings due to its strictly energy focus. You will also learn about the Department of Energy's Superior Energy Performance (SEP) program, which utilizes ISO 50001 as a core element.

The course will review the genesis and specifics around ISO 14001 and ISO 50001, while also examining details and differences behind each generic and specific part of the standards. You will learn how to best address energy reduction using each, and the instructor will provide a variety of specific examples for each program's implementation.

If your team is already familiar with ISO systems through quality programs like ISO 9001, going the next step to either 14001 or 50001 can be relatively easy -- especially if you have defined your true objectives and thereby understand how best to apply the specific ISO 14001 or 50001 standards to achieve them. But even without prior ISO experience, many organizations are now realizing that ISO 50001 is a relatively easy way to ensure proper energy systems management and achieve energy reduction, while at the same time improving your community or corporate image.

You will leave this program with a much clearer understanding of what these two ISO standards are, how to apply/implement them, and how to decide which program or programs might facilitate your organization in meeting, and likely surpassing, its specific energy and/or environmental goals.
