ABOUT THE SEMINAR

This special 5-day seminar provides an in-depth, comprehensive learning and problem-solving forum for those who want a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction techniques and strategies, as well as serving as a preparatory course of instruction for energy professionals preparing to sit for AEE's Certified Energy Manager (CEM) examination.

The program begins by examining the basic fundamentals within all key areas of energy management. From there, the instructors systematically move to a “working level” knowledge of the specific principles and techniques needed to really get the job done. This approach has been specially designed to fulfill the needs of professionals who seek a broader and more detailed learning experience than can be provided in AEE energy seminar’s shorter courses. In only five days, you can gain the knowledge and confidence it takes to effectively apply state-of-the-art principles of energy management, and to achieve control over energy costs in your organization — whether you’re responsible for managing a single facility or developing an energy management program for multiple corporate facilities, government buildings, etc. The information presented will also give you tools you need to cut energy intensity as required by the recently signed Executive Order. The Comprehensive Five Day Training Program for Energy Managers and workbook are copyrighted materials of AEE seminars and protected under copyright laws. Only AEE seminars may conduct this program and unauthorized use of any training materials, course documents or course outline is strictly prohibited and may result in certification forfeiture. This program has been completed by thousands of professionals since its inception in 1994.
