Whether you are a recent arrival to Canada, a new professional just entering the job market, a student completing their studies, or looking to further your career in energy efficiency, CIET has developed a course that will give you pragmatic knowledge and skills that you can demonstrate and apply to an employer from the outset. The program can also be seen as a steppingstone toward the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) designation – which is normally taken only after at least three years of experience in the field.
Participants in this course will:
- Be exposed to the principles, systems, codes and regulations that govern energy efficiency
- Gain well-rounded knowledge of energy management
- Understand the basics of how to calculate energy, benchmark and audit
- Learn where energy savings can be found in a building or facility
- Teach participants about energy supply and management
Who should attend?
- Professionals in career transition
- New Canadians interested in a career in Energy Efficiency
- Professionals seeking to upgrade their skills
- New graduates
- Recently hired energy management professionals
Topics to be covered include:
- Energy Fundamentals describes the basic principles of energy, how to manipulate units of measure and helps to understand power and energy terms.
- Energy Rates describes the different charges that apply to energy consumption and demand, and explains the incremental cost of electricity and thermal energy.
- Tools for Energy Audits lists and describes the various tools that support an energy audit and how to use these tools to help identify opportunities for energy reduction.
- Energy Saving Calculations explains the importance of various tools used when calculating energy savings and how to apply them.
- Motors, Fans, Pumps Savings & VSDs describes a method to assess savings opportunities in motor driven systems, identifies common opportunities and the savings calculation required for speed control.
