2020 was definitely a memorable year. The COVID-19 pandemic rocked Q1 and forced CIET, like many other organisations, to pivot its approach to energy efficiency training. (Learn all about it in the case study: How CIET Turned its Business Model Upside Down in Just 11 Days, and the follow up, Part 2 of the case study: How the COVID-19 Pandemic Ended Up Being an Opportunity for CIET).


Now that the year is over, we can look back and reflect on the changes that were made and what we can look forward to in 2021. Here's a snapshot of 2020.

This is to inform you that the course date is too close to be able to ship hard copies of the material to you on time. If you are willing to use the material in secured PDF, receive the material later (likely after the course) and pay upon registration, please click OK to continue the registration process. Please note that the shipping process will start only when the course fees are paid in full and delays are to be expected. Many thanks!
