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. AEE semminars’s most requested program, this seminar has been completed by thousands of professionals since its inception in 1994.

The CEM certification process requires meeting specified CEM eligibility requirements, along with the submitting of a separate CEM application and $400 application fee, which qualifies you to sit for the exam. The CEM examination is administered at each seminar site beginning at 11:00 am on day 5 of instruction -- only to those candidates who have met the above requirements. NOTE: You must bring a hand calculator to the seminar and to the exam, since CEM testing policy does not allow computers, tablets or cell phones to be used for calculations during the exam. To obtain/print your CEM application form or see further information on the CEM program, visit www.aeecenter.org/certification.

 

Basic Skills Required for This Seminar
The CEM preparatory training seminar assumes basic problem-solving skills, including quick and accurate use of a hand calculator, ability to use basic algebra, and ability to set up problem solution expressions and calculations from a written problem statement. Those needing a refresher program in these skills may wish to participate in one of the following self-study seminars:
