ABOUT THE SEMINAR
This seminar will help professionals who already have the CEM credential stay current on trends, technologies and strategies to bolster their energy management game plans. The course also offers valuable CEUs to professionals to help them maintain their CEM. The presentation has been designed as a follow-up for previous energy manager training offered by AEE, and is presented by the well known instructors. This course is more interactive and addresses several advanced topics, going beyond what was covered in the basic course, or that are new since the materials for the original seminar were developed. By completing this two-day course, you will earn 1.6 CEU, which is equal to 3.2 credits toward recertification. A total of 10 credits must be accumulated over a three-year period to maintain CEM certification.
