About this Seminar

This 3-day program is designed to provide the specific training needed by professionals preparing to sit for AEE's Certified Demand Side Manager (CDSM) certification exam.

  • Designing new DSM programs
  • The cost components as well as financial and business impacts of DSM programs

This comprehensive, one-of-a-kind seminar is designed to provide this necessary knowledge, as well as to serve as a preparatory vehicle for those seeking to achieve CDSM certification.

This course earns 1.2 CEUs, 12 PDHs and 2.4 AEE Credits toward Re-certification and is:
