Certified Energy Manager On-Demand Training Program and CEM Exam (Self-Paced)

Tags: Train Green, SEICBP, contractors

Course Description

The Certified Energy Manager On-Demand Training Program offers the full-length version of the CEM program (20+ training hours), through pre-recorded sessions from multiple instructors. Participants will also receive a physical copy of the workbook to prepare for their exam.

The instructor teaches participants energy relationships and the equations and calculations that govern them. As a CEM, it is easier to optimize a system when these fundamentals are understood. When used as a certification exam preparation tool, the on-demand program effectively prepares participants for the CEM exam because they are more comfortable performing energy-related equations.
