Presented online in a series of four live three-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide the specific training and background needed by professionals preparing to sit for AEE's Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) exam. The course agenda also includes updates on topics of current importance to all energy managers.
You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the three live teleconferencing sessions. About the Seminar
This course will review the technical, economic and regulatory aspects of effective energy management, as well as the basics of energy efficiency improvement as it relates to electrical, utility, building and combustion systems. The essentials of performing an energy audit, as well as developing practical strategies for reducing energy costs will also be covered.
Complete Your Certification Application & Register for an Exam
This program covers the full scope of subjects addressed on the AEE's certification exam. The exam can be taken at a remote testing center. For more about certification and testing, visit aeecenter.org, then select the required certification and complete step 2 of the application process.
This Fast Track training course assumes significant prior experience and training in the energy management field, and serves as an effective "refresher" course for those seeking CEM certification. Individuals who feel that they may benefit from a more detailed and extensive training experience prior to sitting for the CEM examination may wish to consider AEE's live seminar, Comprehensive 5-Day Training Program for Energy Managers offered at locations throughout the continental U.S.
The designation "CEM" is a nationally recognized credential, having been adopted by a variety of entities throughout the U.S. For example the CEM was adopted by SAFE- BIDCO for its low-interest loan programs, by D.O.D. for R.F.P.'s for energy audits, and by the Mississippi Energy Department for its auditor certification program. In addition, the state of Virginia requires state agencies that spend in excess of $1 million annually to retain an agency energy manager with the CEM credential.
