An energy auditor evaluates and analyzes how energy is being used in a commercial or institutional facility, identifies energy conservation opportunities, and makes recommendations on where consumption can be reduced or optimized. There are three main types of energy audits: Level 1 audits (walkthrough surveys that allow you to rapidly identify opportunities for energy savings); Level 2 audits (energy survey analyses that are commonly used in commercial buildings); and Level 3 audits (detailed analyses of capital-intensive modifications).
The four-day Certified Energy Auditor (CEA) program provides participants with the fundamental knowledge needed to evaluate how energy is being used in a facility and identify where consumption can be reduced. Additionally, it covers useful calculation methodologies through practical examples and peer exercises.
This is the right course for you if you are or will be involved in commercial building audits and want to expand your knowledge of the complete energy auditing and reporting process. The course also prepares you to challenge the exam and earn the CEA credential.
