Learn the skills to prepare you for a career in a burgeoning field where new opportunities are opening every day at a five-day seminar on energy management being presented by Great River Energy and the Association for Energy Engineers (AEE) at Great River’s headquarters in Maple Grove, Minn., Feb. 14 to 18.
Certified Energy Manager (CEM) Training provides an in-depth learning and problem-solving forum for those who want a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction techniques and strategies than AEE’s shorter courses provide. The program begins by examining the basic fundamentals in all key areas of energy management, then systematically moves to “working level” knowledge about specific principles and techniques needed to really get the job done.
In only five days, students will gain the knowledge and confidence needed to effectively apply state-of-the-art principles of energy management, and achieve control over their organization’s energy costs, whether they are managing a single facility or developing a program for multiple buildings. This is AEE’s most requested program and has been completed by thousands of professionals since 1994.
Basic skills required
This course assumes basic problem-solving skills, including quick and accurate use of a hand calculator, ability to use basic algebra and to set up problem solution expressions and calculations from a written problem statement. Those needing a refresher program in these skills may wish to enroll in the Basics of Energy Management self-study seminar prior to taking this seminar.
Utility employees and engineering consultants who would like to become Certified Energy Managers should register today. Individuals who do not wish to pursue certification and sit for the exam are welcomed to enroll in the course, too. The cost is $2,000 per student, and includes continental breakfast, lunch, and breaks each day; course book; proctored exam on fifth day and the cost of the CEM application and exam.
Great River must receive registration and payment by Jan. 10, 2011. After you register, a copy of the book titled “Guide to Energy Management” will be mailed to you so you can prepare for the seminar and exam prior to the actual seminar. Although the cost of the exam is included, you must download your personal application.
If the minimum number of attendees is not met, the seminar will be cancelled and fees refunded. If the class is held, the seminar is non-refundable.
