Energy Management Professional 101: Your Career Stepping Stone

CIET has developed a new course that will give you practical knowledge and valuable skills you can bring to your future employer: Energy Management Professional 101.


Whether you’re a new professional just entering the job market, a student nearing the completion of your studies, or a seasoned professional looking to further your career in energy, engineering or another technical field, this course is a great learning opportunity for you.


Develop Your Understanding of Key Concepts

  • Expose yourself to the principles, systems, codes and regulations that govern energy efficiency
  • Gain well-rounded knowledge of energy efficiency
  • Learn and understand the basics of how to calculate energy, benchmark and audit
  • Discover where energy savings can be found in a building or facility
  • Learn from an experienced instructor about energy supply and management


Additional Benefits

  • Add a certificate to your resume to prove your potential to potential employers
  • Demonstrate your relevance to energy efficiency positions


Getting You One Step Closer To A CEM

If your goal is to obtain the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) designation, this is your path. On top of the valuable knowledge you’ll gain, Energy Management Professional 101 can also be used as a career stepping stone, getting you one step closer to the CEM designation. Typically, the CEM is only taken after at least 3 years of experience in the field, but with EMP 101, you’ll be on the fast track.


A Need For More Energy Management Professionals

In our discussions with public and private organisations throughout Canada, CIET has concluded that there is a shortage of energy management professionals, despite the large number of energy management professionals trained every year. This need will continue to grow as both the province and the country seek to meet their international commitments related to climate change mitigation.


While the breadth and scope of what Energy Managers do can vary greatly between organisations and industry segments, they are generally intimately involved in the planning and monitoring of energy use at an organisational or facility level. Often acting as technical leaders, they are the drivers of energy efficiency projects, the authority on reporting and regulations, planners of retrofit projects, and managers of renewable energy projects. Energy Managers are present across different sectors, including the commercial sector, government and institutions, industrial and manufacturing sector, and residential sector.

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!


Best regards,

The CIET Team
