The Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) certification is the most recognized designation in energy management and provides a wide range of benefits to help you thrive in both your role and in the energy efficiency industry. More than 16,000 professionals from over 40 countries are now CEM® certified, including more than 4,500 in Canada. The program is also ideal for professionals who require CEM® certification as recognition of their industry expertise or as a required designation for a given position or project.
The comprehensive five-day CEM training is ideal for professionals who seek a thorough program that covers the technical, economic, and regulatory aspects of effective energy management. The CEM also provides a comprehensive forum with problem-solving activities for those who want to gain a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction techniques and strategies. Additionally, the course has recently been improved to include:
Here is a short video about the concept of net present value (NPV), a calculation often used when selecting energy-efficient technologies or projects. This is an example of one of the many concepts that are part of the CEM course:
CIET is the exclusively authorized Canadian trainer of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) for the delivery of the CEM® training and certification program.
Please note that CIET only offers the CEM training program in Canada. Should you want to attend CEM training and come from outside of Canada, please visit AEE’s website.
At the end of the course, participants will understand:
