Why should I become CEA?

The Certified Energy Auditor (CEA) certification program is focused on audits for commercial and industrial buildings only and does not qualify participants to perform residential audits. The CEA certification is issued by the Association of Energy Engineers based in Atlanta, US, and the program is based on ASHRAE standards. CIET’s CEA training program is not related to Enbridge’s or other Ontario home energy auditing programs. The audience for this designation is energy engineers and consultants, current energy auditors seeking certification, new energy auditors, plant and facility engineers, energy managers, ESCO professionals, energy performance contracting professionals, organizations considering energy projects, as well as instructors teaching energy analysis.
