OUR Measurement & Verification PROGRAMS

The EEC, in partnership with EVO, currently delivers two M&V training programs a number of times each year. Please click through the program title for more information on each offering.

Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMVP) - Training and Examination

The CMVP program consists of a 2.5 day Measurement & Verification Fundamentals workshop, designed to introduce M&V practitioners to the application of the IPMVP. The workshop is followed by a 4 hour examination for those who wish to achieve CMVP status.

Applied Measurement & Verification - Workshop

The Applied Measurement & Verification Workshop is available to CMVPs who wish to deepen their exposure to the concepts, theory, mathematical analysis and tools available to perform effective M&V.

Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMVP) Training

The Energy Efficiency Council is the only Australian provider of the Efficiency Valuation Organization’s ‘Certified Measurement & Verification Professional’ training and exams, delivered in partnership with the US Association of Energy Engineers (AEE).

About CMVP

The right to use the CMVP title is granted to those who demonstrate proficiency in the M&V field by passing a 4-hour written exam and meet the required academic and practical qualifications. EVO's certification level training is offered as preparation for the exam, and as a review of basic principles for experts.

With the initials ‘CMVP’ beside your name, you are distinguishing yourself among those involved professionally in areas requiring the application of accurate and reliable measurement and verification methodologies. You will have demonstrated high levels of experience, competence, and specialised knowledge within your field.

In addition to the knowledge gained from the training course, attendees will receive the following benefits:

  • A printed copy of the training course materials
  • A copy of the IPMVP
  • Other suggested prior reading
  • EVO Certificate of Attendance
  • Access to the Subscriber Section of the EVO website for one year

The CMVP Training program is 2.5 days of training, followed by a 4 hour examiniation, and is delivered in Australia by a number of international and local trainers accredited by the EVO.

Learning Objectives

Participants in the Measurement and Verification Training Course will learn:

  • how to design an M&V strategy for projects that complies with the IPMVP; and
  • how to manage the savings verification process for both internal and external reporting.

Prerequisites

Particpants are required to complete a pre-course module, which takes approximately 2-3 hours and is made available to registrants 1 month prior to the training program.

To achieve designation as a CMVP, candidates must meet minimum education and work experience requirements. For more information visit the AEE website here.

About the Workshop

Presented in partnership with the Efficiency Valuation Organisation (EVO), the two day Applied Measurement & Verification workshop gives measurement and verification (M&V) practitioners deeper exposure to the concepts, theory, mathematical analysis and tools to perform effective M&V.

The workshop is practical and hands-on, using spreadsheets and software to calculate savings on both sample and real life projects.

Small class sizes give participants the opportunity to focus on using their own real world examples to better understand the trade offs in creating and executing IPMVP Option A, B and C M&V plans.

The workshop is delivered by international trainer Steve Kromer. Steve is an energy efficiency consultant, focusing on energy savings verification (Program Evaluation and M&V) and energy efficiency data management systems. Steve holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech (1983). He was a senior engineer at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (where he is currently a guest researcher) and a director at Enron Energy Services. Steve is the treasurer of the Efficiency Valuation Organization (EVO) and  is the current Chairman of the Certified M&V Professional (CMVP) committee.

Learning Objectives

Participants will leave the workshop with:

  • a broad awareness of the state of the art in energy modeling for IPMVP Option A/B/C M&V applications.
  • an understanding of various business and regulatory mechanisms requiring M&V
  • knowledge on where to go for the latest research on M&V theory and methods
  • the ability to perform simple regression analysis in Excel
  • the ability to load and run advanced M&V analysis in ECAM (Excel add-in) and UT3 (executable software)
  • the ability to apply the above analysis outputs to a real-world M&V situation

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

This program offers CPD points toward the following certifications and accreditiations:

Prerequisites

To participate in the workshop, participants must:

  • Be a current CMVP or CMVP-IT
  • Have basic Excel skills
  • Have field experience with M&V
  • Be able to bring with them to class an M&V plan for review and analysis.
