The Certified Energy Manager (CEM) certification provides an in-depth, comprehensive learning and problem-solving forum for those seeking a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction techniques and strategies.
The program examines the basic fundamentals within all key areas of energy management as well as “working level” knowledge of the specific principles and techniques needed to really get the job done.
