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.

Anyone may take the CEM Training Course.

An application, EMIT  or CEM, is required to take the exam. Both of these applications are specific to "in-house" trainings with exam. It is preferred that this be completed before the exam. If not completed before the exam, it slows the certification process down. Also, there is an off chance that the applicant may not be qualified to take the exam (no degree or experience). If anyone is uncertain if they qualify, they may contact Helen Johnson, AEE here.

There is no additional fee for the CEM or EMIT Application.

CEM certification does not require AEE membership, but it’s recommended because it gives certified professionals 1 credit per year towards recertification.

Candidates should pay the Chapter all the fees for the seminar and application/exam. Candidates do not have to pay AEE National an additional fees for the seminar, application, or exam.

If you have questions, please feel free to email Jason Jepsen
