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.

CIET to Continue Virtual Real-Time Classroom Training in the First Half of 2022 ... with a Twist! 

Last Updated: November 8, 2021 

 

CIET to Continue Virtual Real-Time Classroom Training in the First Half of 2022 … with a Twist! 

 

With well over 200 virtual real-time courses delivered since March 2020 and based on feedback received from more than 2,500 participants, CIET is happy to announce that all public training sessions offered between January and June 2022 will be delivered through our virtual real-time classrooms, with one exception. We’re very excited about our very first in-person course since March 13, 2020: a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) session to be held in downtown Toronto from April 4 to 8, 2022. 

 

Keeping our courses virtual will allow everyone to continue to access CIET training in a safe manner that protects both our participants and trainers regardless of what happens with the pandemic or public health measures. This allows you peace of mind to register for a virtual training course today, knowing that the training will be delivered with the same quality that you would expect from an in-person CIET course. Also, keeping virtual real-time training sessions will ensure that our full course calendar is available to all participants across Canada and abroad regardless of geographical location. 

 

That being said, we really hope to be able to deliver (1) a much broader in-person offering in the fall of 2022 (2) while still offering significant pan-Canadian virtual training.  

 

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 in our virtual classrooms! 

 

 Best regards, 

The CIET Team
