Participants Respond To CIET’s Virtual Real-Time Courses

After more than 25 virtual real-time courses delivered by CIET, we wanted to interview some participants and collect their thoughts and feedback on this online training format. Here’s what two participants in the Energy Management Professional 101 course in early June 2020 had to say about the course and the virtual format.



We’ve also been receiving many positive course reviews on both the content of the workshops as well as the virtual delivery and benefits of participating in an online course. Here’s what others had to say about their recent experiences.


The course has really helped me prepare for my new role. I enjoyed the practical nature of the course and that we were able to go through the exercises step by step and ask questions as we went. Thank you so much for continuing to run the course during these times, it has been an invaluable learning experience for me

I found that is very good to have an online training like this. It saves the commuting time, gas, etc. I would like to see more training like this online.

-Certified RETScren Expert Participant, May 2020

Great course the provides a good overview to energy management practices and provides great examples to learn from. I will be taking several tools that we learned to use and put them into practice on a daily basis.

-Energy Management Professional 101 Participant, June 2020

Thanks for a great course. I liked how it involved participation, even as a virtual course. Strong facilitation. Appreciate how presenters are willing to offer feedback even after the course.

I am grateful to CIET team for accommodating me last minute in the CEM course and helping me prepare for my exam. The training and course materials were very beneficial. I really enjoyed the online classes and have learnt a lot.
