Overview

Important COVID-19 Update: CIET switches to virtual real-time classroom!

Schedule and Logistics

Considering the current situation, CIET is bringing most of its spring training sessions to you through virtual real-time classrooms. You should know that :

 

  • The course will begin at 8:30 am and end at 5:00 pm, according to (GMT-05:00) Eastern [US & Canada].
  • We will be using GoToTraining platform which has great interactive features.
  • We will include dedicated time for questions.
  • We will take breaks, just as in a real classroom.
  • You will receive the login details by email upon registering to the course.
  • We recommend that you use computer audio, rather than connection by phone if possible as well as headphones to avoid sound feedback.

 

The IPMVP® is the energy savings verification protocol most commonly used in the world. Many individuals, such as institution owners and leaders, energy managers and ESCO service suppliers need to develop a general understanding of the methods used to conduct measurement and verification (M&V), though they do not have to possess in-depth expertise as certified CMVP® professionals would.

 

This one-day training, offered in collaboration with the Efficiency Valuation Organization (EVO®), presents the principal M&V and IPMVP concepts by outlining the central purpose of M&V, summarising the possible usages of M&V methods and stressing the need to conduct M&V calculations based on each project’s specific characteristics. This training is intended for staff and managers in charge of financing and regulations, as well as for technicians who require basic understanding of the role played by M&V in supporting investment in energy efficiency activities.

 

Please note this 1-day course is exactly equivalent to Day 1 of the regular training schedule of the Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP) program. For this reason, throughout your 1-day course, you will be attending it alongside those trainees who have enrolled in the regular CMVP program and will be attending Day 1 of this program.

 

Objectives

  • Understand the basic concepts of how to carry out M&V activities to measure and verify energy efficiency projects
  • Learn about the contents of M&V plans
  • Develop understanding about the practical aspects of implementing M&V plans
  • Identify accuracy limitations of M&V activities

Who should attend?

  • Building owners and industry stakeholders who wish to measure project energy savings
  • Building owners and industry stakeholders who wish to partner with ESCOs to implement Energy Efficiency (EE) projects
  • Employees in charge of operating and evaluating EE programs
  • Engineering and professional firms specialised in EE
  • ESCO employees who prepare M&V plans
This course is offered in collaboration with EVO.

Agenda

This course will cover the following topics:

Introduction

  • The definition of the M&V concept

Simple examples

  • Practical examples and review of the advantages and disadvantages of each option
  • Option C – Multiple retrofitting changes made to a building
  • Option A – Lighting efficiency
  • Option B – Control of compressed air leakage
  • Option B – Industrial heat recovery
  • Discussion of case studies suggested by the class

 

M&V planning

  • The M&V plan – why, when and how?
  • The limits and the interactive effects
  • Different types of savings
  • Selecting independent variables
  • The sources of data and the baseline
  • Determining energy prices
  • The M&V plan

 

Summary

  • Complying with the IPMVP
  • The contents of the M&V report
  • Selecting an IPMVP option

Important COVID-19 Update for CIET Spring 2020 Training Calendar – CIET Goes Virtual!

Last Updated: March 24, 2020, 09:20am

 

CIET Goes Virtual!

The entire CIET team has been working hard recently to provide new training options for you through virtual real-time classrooms considering the current situation. This will allow everyone to continue accessing CIET training in a safe manner, which protects both our participants and our trainers. You can register for these virtual courses in confidence, knowing that they will provide the same quality of training that you expect from CIET. These real-time training sessions will be available to all participants across Canada.

 

REGISTER FOR VIRTUAL TRAINING TODAY: You can view all these virtual training courses on our calendar!

 

Deferred courses

For now, CIET has taken the decision to defer all in-class courses which cannot be offered virtually, scheduled before June 15, 2020.

 

If you are NOT registered to a course yet:

We are still taking registrations for all courses (deferred and virtual) and will communicate with registered participants to a deferred course when it becomes possible to offer the training again in person.

Cancellation policy: Should you wish to cancel later, we’ve suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately. This suspension will be effective for all registrations made prior to, at least, April 30, 2020.


If you ARE registered to a deferred course:

Courses offered before June 15, 2020, which cannot be offered virtually, are currently deferred.

For now, we propose keeping the registrations of all participants active and informing you of: (1) new dates as they become possible/available; and (2) our new fall 2020 training dates, which should be announced in May-June. Your registration and payment could then be applied, without additional fees, to any new training session.

Should you still wish to cancel, we’ve suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately.

 

Through all these measures, CIET hopes to provide as much flexibility as possible to training participants while respecting its commitments to other participants, trainers and partners, as well as public health recommendations.

 

We thank you very much for your trust and collaboration and look forward to welcoming you soon with an elbow bump!
