TAQATI launches first-of-its-kind Certified Energy Manager Course
An updated module for Certified Energy Manager (CEM) course, the first of its kind in the world, has been introduced in the United Arab Emirates under the Dubai Energy Efficiency Training Program. Designed to provide an in-depth, comprehensive learning experience with a focus on problem-solving, the CEM certification will immensely benefit those seeking a broader understanding of the latest energy cost reduction techniques and strategies.
The CEM program covers basic fundamentals within all key areas of energy management as well as working level knowledge of specific principles and techniques that are required to get the job done. Besides offering a comprehensive review of Energy Audit Instrumentation, the updated module also covers the broad review of the renewable energy and technologies. The successful completion of this course will empower professionals to control energy costs in their organization through gaining knowledge and confidence to effectively apply state-of-the-art principles of energy management.
Ali Al Jassim, CEO, Etihad ESCO, said: “We are proud to bring such globally recognized energy efficiency trainings to Dubai with an aim to upskill the emirate’s energy efficiency market. The launch of updated module for the CEM course is a great step forward in building the right capabilities to achieve Dubai’s ambitious target of 30 per cent reduction in energy consumption by 2030. Besides, this creates value for the emirate by offering continuous opportunities for professional development. The introduction of an updated international certification module as one of the first globally clearly sets us apart from other global markets.”
The updated material was successfully launched during the CEM course on 10th of February 2019. The next CEM training sessions will be in April (21-24) and October (6-9).
