Available Certificate Programs

Sustainable Green Buildings: Introduction to LEED®

Presented online in a series of two live two-hour time modules

This seminar provides a detailed introduction to the concepts and practices involved in development of sustainable green LEED® buildings, covering both new construction and existing structures.

What Is LEED?  Created by the U.S. Green Building Council in order to more clearly define "green building" and to create a framework for assessing building performance, the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.

Energy Auditing Fundamentals

Presented online in a series of two live two-hour time modules

This seminar covers all the fundamental components of a complete energy audit. Many of the products being labeled as "energy audits" are nothing more than a generalized look at a facility or an investigation of a particular system (often for the purpose of selling a particular product or project). A truly effective energy audit needs to examine not only the major energy end use equipment, but also the operations, maintenance and management processes of the facility as well. It is one of the first actions which must be taken to accomplish an effective energy cost control program.

This course is designed to educate not only those professionals conducting audits do so effectively, but to inform end users of what they should expect of an audit, and government/utility/service provider managers of what their auditors should be including/doing in the audits they provide for their clients.

Developing an Energy Management Master Plan

Presented online in a series of three live two-hour time modules

This seminar covers all aspects of creating and implementing a successful, cost-reducing energy management program for any size or type of organization. It will take you step by step through the process of developing an energy management program -- or more broadly, an Energy Master Plan (EMP) -- to achieve more efficient energy consumption and lower total operating costs.

This course is designed to provide energy managers, senior corporate management, engineers, plant managers, and those who service the energy needs of an organization with the tools to design and implement a successful EMP and cut the impact of energy costs on their bottom line.

Energy Cost Control: How the Money Works

Two-hour online seminar

This seminar provides strategies for building organization-wide consensus support for energy improvements. The key to implementing energy improvements is to demonstrate to other department managers "what's in it for them" should they support these efforts. This is done by showing how the net benefits of energy improvements will filter down to a facility's bottom line.

You'll receive instruction in advanced analytical techniques developed by the instructor using the Microsoft© Excel spreadsheet. Advanced techniques include analysis of interval data, two and three-dimensional load profiling using Excel (the latter being unique to this seminar) which include visualizing interval meter data as a 3D "landscape" and as parallel "sliced" load profiles. Students will receive files via email containing macros for quickly converting interval data into 3D formats and other background information related to the basics of interval metering.
