    The Advanced Measurement & Verification (AMV) course is a hands-on training program in measurement and verification, building on theoretical knowledge acquired through the CMVP training and certification.

    The course covers several statistical tools, various examples and case studies as well as actual development of an M&V plan.

    CMVP certification is not a prerequisite to the course but is strongly recommended.

    • M&V as part of a standard energy efficiency project cycle
    • Review of M&V fundamentals
    • Baseline Adjustments
    • Measurement boundary
    • Baseline energy
    • Baseline
    • Baseline Period
    • Mathematical model for the baseline period
