3 Types of Energy Management Training

The goal of energy management training is to provide effective methods and practices for the use of energy. For businesses, this will in turn help to minimise costs, maximise profits and enhance competitive positions.


Energy Management Training comes in different forms, and each is valuable to different types of people and organisations. For this reason, it’s important to assess your own training needs.


Each of the following types of energy management training are valuable on their own, but together they provide benefits greater than the sum of their parts.


CIET | types of energy management training; technical, behavioural, organisational




Technical training is job-specific, and is generally thought of as non-transferable (as opposed to soft-skills). Through this type of training, individuals can acquire the skills needed to more accurately and thoroughly perform the technical components of their jobs. Examples of this training include accreditation-based programs such as CEM or CMVP.




Behavioural training provides and expands on-the-job awareness in order to address problems and change individual habits. It addresses the differences in how individuals think and act in a workplace/site setting, and seeks to create a certain uniformity in awareness and knowledge, so they can be more effective and compatible with others. An example of this would be the Dollars to Sense training.




Organisational training focuses on addressing energy management on a larger scale, and incorporating processes and methods into a running organisation in order to meet its objectives. An example of this would be the incorporation of a corporate energy management plan, a 50001 Standard, or a GHG policy.
