Presented online in a series of two live 2 hour time modules, this seminar examines the cost-saving benefits of an effective energy centered maintenance (ECM) program, and explains the steps and process necessary to implement one for your organization.

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.

 

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.

About the Seminar

Energy centered maintenance (ECM) is a preventative maintenance approach that uses the RCM2 analysis and measuring energy efficiency of equipment approach to reduce energy consumption and costs for any organization. It is structured to be an integral part of the organization's overall O & M program. Effective ECM puts in place measures to prevent or significantly reduce energy waste from equipment or components -- even if the problem is not necessarily related specifically to their failure to function.

For example, a motor running 24 hours a day, seven days a week wastes a lot of energy if it was designed and needs to run only seven hours per day. Though the motor is serving its function and has not failed, it is using excessive and wasteful energy. In this case, the ECM approach pinpoints and repairs the faulty switch which is preventing the motor from shutting off, thereby eliminating the wasted energy.

This online course clearly demonstrates how maintenance and energy are related and how reducing excessive energy use can help reduce your utility bills, energy consumption and cost. It explains in easy-to-follow terms what an ECM program is, how it is structured, and how to develop and implement such a cost-saving initiative for your organization. The instructor's hands-on experience in a broad spectrum of facility settings over time has shown that doing so may potentially decrease your electric bill by 10% or more.

As a contracted senior environmental associate with Analytical Services Inc. for eight years, Mr. Howell implemented environmental management systems at eight U.S. DEA facilities, including labs, division offices, an intelligence center and an air operations center. In this capacity, he was instrumental in planning and designing several energy management initiatives that resulted in significant energy cost saving improvements throughout the DEA facilities. Previously Mr. Howell was manager of distribution planning and reliability for Florida Power and Light, and also served as a Lt. Colonel in Air Force civil engineering, where he was involved in energy reduction efforts, reliability centered maintenance, project management, construction and maintenance management, efficiency and productivity improvements. He holds a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Mississippi State University and a masters in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. In 2014 he authored the book, Effective Implementation of ISO 50001 Energy Management System, published by ASQ Quality Press.


Course Materials and Advance Preparations

The seminar fee covers registration for both program modules (total of 4 hours), seminar workbook (downloadable PDF format), course certificate, and webinar connection services.
