Energy students can now study "real-world" problems

Educational and networking body the Energy Institute (EI) has launched a new online qualification in energy management, which introduces a feasibility study of a real-world problem in students’ respective organisations.

The course, ‘Level 2: Energy Management Professional’, also involves 15 modules on a variety of energy management topics, comprised of five core modules and a further 10 elective modules from 19 different topics including heating, ventilation, lighting, measurement and verification, on-site electricity generation and regulations and incentives.

The course is intended to help students achieve energy and cost savings, reduce carbon emissions and meet their organisation’s environmental targets, with the course providing 200 hours of learning, while each of the modules can also be undertaken on a stand-alone basis for experienced energy managers seeking expertise on specific topics.

Will Sadler, Training Team Manager, Energy Institute, explains how the course was developed to provide all the knowledge that professional energy managers need to go about their role successfully.

“The programme offers five core modules which cover the underpinning theory of energy management along with finance and project management skills. This reflects the transition for the energy manager’s role from the boiler room to the boardroom and that, moving forwards, all energy managers should have financial and project management know-how in their armoury,” he said.

The qualification adds to the EI’s current energy management training portfolio and is geared towards for those with two or more years’ relevant experience in energy management or who have completed the EI’s introductory course, ‘Level 1: Certificate in Energy Management Essentials’, while the EI states that the Level 2 course will also support individuals working towards achieving Chartered Energy Manager status as it will “demonstrate their commitment to energy management.”
