PORTLAND, Oregon (June 15, 2016) - The Association of Energy Engineers Columbia River Chapter (AEE CRC) today announced that they will host a comprehensive five-day Training Program for Energy Managers in Portland this fall. The nonprofit organization acts as a local training conduit for national certifications. The increasingly recognized and requested Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) certification exam will be proctored on the final day of the training.
The special five-day seminar provides an in-depth, comprehensive learning and problem-solving forum for those who want a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction strategies. The program begins by examining the fundamentals within all key areas of energy management. Students then learn, system by system, how to diagnose and analyze energy savings opportunities.
The Training Program will take place October 10-14, 2016 at Veris Industries in the Portland metro area (12345 SW Leveton Dr, Tualatin, OR 97062). Daily schedule is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and includes breakfast and lunch. The price of the course and exam is $1,995. Early bird registration before September 9th is $1,775. This price includes the course, application/exam fee, study materials, the Guide to Energy Management, and food for the event. A special live seminar application for this event will be provided after registration.
Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) instructor Eric Woodroof will teach the course. Woodroof, who has led the CEM program on five continents, states, "The new energy/carbon requirements in the US will absolutely make the CEM even more desired by employers and energy consumers."
"The CEM certification has become the de facto standard in the energy efficiency industry,” said Pat Lydon, former President of Columbia River Chapter. Since its inception in 1981, the Certified Energy Manager credential has become widely accepted and used as a measure of professional accomplishment within the energy management field. It has gained industry-wide use as the standard for qualifying energy professionals both in the United States and abroad.
