A more recent addition to CIET’s roster of courses, the Energy Management Professional (EMP) 101 program is aimed at providing both generalists and specialists with well-rounded considerations for the central elements that comprise energy efficiency.

This three-day EMP 101 training course is designed to bring participants on a journey through energy management. First, we start by building a foundational understanding of energy management and energy use. Next, we delve into more technical matters focusing on energy consuming systems and the opportunities for energy savings they present. Finally, we explore how energy management is applied within an organization and how to mobilize people and plans/standards (such as ISO 50001) to set and reach efficiency targets.

Whether you are a seasoned professional looking for a more well-rounded understanding of energy management, a recent arrival to Canada, a new professional just entering the energy efficiency industry, or someone who is looking to acquire a more technical understanding of energy efficiency, EMP101 will prove a valuable training experience.

Many participants have used the EMP101 program to acquire pragmatic and system-based knowledge and skills that are beneficial to their current and future employers. The program also serves as a stepping stone toward the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) designation – which is normally taken after an individual has accumulated at least three years of experience in the industry.
