ABOUT THE SEMINAR
This course is designed to provide the most comprehensive training available in the critical areas of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, carbon reduction and reporting. The focused, fast-paced program is intended both to expand your knowledge in the carbon management field and to serve as a preparatory vehicle for the exam required to achieve AEE's Carbon & GHG Reduction Manager (CRM) certification. AEE's widely respected CRM certification, in conjunction with this training program, were originally launched in 2008. The seminar has now been presented on 4 continents, and the certification has gained broad acceptance both in the U.S. and abroad. The CRM exam and course materials have recently been updated to reflect the very latest in carbon trends, reporting protocols and guidance documents.
Participants in the seminar will learn how to interpret current trends and legal requirements; conduct carbon audit and emission inventories; set up a GHG emissions management program, report carbon emissions in compliance with international standards; complete the emissions verification process; structure financing and marketing to maximize project success, and more.
For those wishing to qualify for the CRM certification, the CRM examination will be administered on the afternoon of Day 3 of each seminar to pre-qualified applicants.
