Description

Certified Energy Manager® (CEM) Comprehensive 5-Day Training Program for Energy Professionals

Enhance your operations, control your costs, and expand your career development.

A comprehensive, detailed instructional program covering the full scope of technical, economic, and regulatory components of effective energy management.

This is the course that will empower you to “put it all together” and get the results your company expects. Comprehensive in scope, this five-day program takes you systematically from the underlying fundamentals to the specific “how to’s.” This week-long program of instruction covers the specific techniques necessary to maximize your effectiveness as an energy manager, vice president of operations, or facilities manager. The optional Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) examination will be administered at the conclusion of this program (separate application required).

The ideal course for any professional seeking to:
- Become a good (or better) energy manager.
- Take and pass the CEM exam.
- Know what energy management can do for their company.
- Know what to expect from energy management consultants.

Benefits:
• Teaches you energy management technologies and how to successfully apply them in your building or plant.
• Provides new energy managers and facility managers with the in-depth training they need to minimize energy costs and improve energy efficiency.
• Covers each topic in sufficient detail so that you are ready to apply new ideas and approaches when you finish the course.
• Presents topics initially in an introductory manner, but rather than proceeding as a review, quickly builds to a working level that incorporates practical applications.
• Shows the benefits of energy management and how to perform all the calculations needed to understand and control energy costs in buildings and other facilities.
• Explains thoroughly the steps in an energy audit or energy survey, and shows how those steps accomplish the overall goal of reducing energy costs.
• Offers a hands-on explanation of energy audit instrumentation, and lets you see some of the equipment, meters, and measuring devices that are used to collect data.
• Teaches you why utilities want to help their customers save money on their energy bills and become more energy-efficient.
• Unravels the maze of buzzwords on energy codes and standards — explains NECPA, PURPA, NGPA, ICP, ASHRAE, CFCs, CAAA of 1990, and NEPA of 1992.
• Increases your understanding of the major energy-consuming systems in buildings, and shows how the building envelope affects building energy use.
• Reveals how energy is used in your building; how that compares to other buildings.
• Covers the various factors that are involved in energy rate structures, and how that knowledge can help you save money.
• Devotes enough time to electric rate structures to assure you fully understand how they work, and how you can change equipment, processes, and operating procedures to keep electric costs to a minimum.
• Covers economic decision measures thoroughly, then proceeds step-by-step through the development of present values and present worth of discounted cash flows.
• Explains fully the various ways to perform life cycle costing.
• Teaches you how to evaluate alternative fuel choices and how to capitalize on the benefits of deregulation of gas supply and electric power generation.
• Focuses on electrical peak demand control and how much that can save your facility.
• Examines new lighting technologies to discover what changes can dramatically lower your electric costs — usually with an incentive from your electric utility.
• Reveals why motors probably use over half the electric energy in your facility, and how you can cut those costs with high-efficiency motors and adjustable speed drives.
• Assures that you understand the basic air conditioning cycle, as well as how to reduce air conditioning costs by using better controls, more efficient equipment, and new technologies like heat pipes and thermal storage.
• Makes sure you have a thorough understanding of how boilers, furnaces, and heaters work, and the steps you can take to improve their efficiencies.
• Teaches you what cogeneration really is and where it could help you provide low-cost heat and electric power.
• Puts all of the pieces together, enabling you to identify and integrate real opportunities to use new equipment, new operating procedures, and new processes to significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.
