Top 5 Private Energy Efficiency Training Courses

At CIET, we are focused on coordinating and delivering the most impactful and pragmatic learning experiences possible to meet both organisation and individual learning objectives. This often involves providing training to organisations when and where it is required. Private training offerings, which can be delivered virtually or on site when safe, are used to meet an organisation’s specific objectives, circumstances or timelines (dates that are convenient to you).


In several cases, public sector organisations and utilities use private training to offer capacity-building services to channel partners and regional stakeholders.

Top 5 Private Courses for Energy Efficiency Training

Energy Efficiency for Building Operators and Maintenance Staff (EEBO) | 1 & 2-day courses available

The Energy Efficiency for Building Operators & Maintenance Staff (EEBO) course is a hands-on and highly interactive 2-day course designed to engage, motivate and empower building operators. A unique aspect of this training course is the Energy Hunt – which brings participants out of the classroom and into the practical day-to-day operations of a building (the organisation’s facility). As a private course, EEBOM allows Building Operators and Maintenance Staff to explore their facility, teaches them how to conduct savings calculations, and identify energy saving opportunities.


Participants will explore the energy savings that exist within lighting, pumps and fans, building envelope components, HVAC and refrigeration, building automation systems, ventilation and more.

Certified RETScreen® Expert (CRE)

The Certified RETScreen® Expert course is designed to help participants develop their skills in the analysis of all types of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. The course teaches participants about the new analysis functions provided by the software. A private CRE session will enable employees who are involved with the study of an organisation’s building or company’s energy use to grow their level of comfort and proficiency with the software and empower them to perform an array of tasks from benchmarking to feasibility analysis, to the impact of a project on GHG emissions.
