Certified energy manager

This course is presented by Ian Boylan
  • I found the course contents and the qualification itself very useful in my day to day role. As an energy specialist I am dealing with clients from different backgrounds and different expertise and having a qualification like CEM helps me get their attention. Also I feel that my comments in different meetings and energy reports hold a better value and receive a positive response due to CEM qualification. The Course Tutor (Ian) was excellent and I had the chance to refresh some of the stuff from my engineering days. Also I learned few good techniques related to data analysis which helped me improving the overall energy auditing and reporting.
  • The CEM course has been invaluable
  • It was among the best training courses I have ever had
  • I use the learning that I gained almost daily and I refer back to the course notes regularly. The qualification makes it easier to get my voice heard on professional matters
  • I have found the CEM qualification extremely useful professionally
  • I can think of numerous occasions, since completing the course, where I have used the engineering knowledge gained from the course directly in my work. Furthermore I still refer to the course notes now and again which were helpful during the course and continue to be so
  • I found it very challenging, but ultimately a really good and polished course
  • The training was useful and worthwhile. The trainer was excellent and very knowledgeable
  • The training itself was very informative and well presented by Ian Boylan and I learnt a lot from Ian as well as other delegates. This has been great for developing confidence and technical understanding
  • I very much enjoyed the course and found it very useful. I have recommended it to others who work in energy in buildings
