Professional development & certification
As Australia’s leading body for energy efficiency, cogeneration and demand management, the Energy Efficiency Council plays a key role in providing training, education and professional development opportunities for EEC members and the broader energy efficiency industry.
Current programs the Council delivers focus on Measurement and Verification (M&V) through the Efficiency Valuation Organization’s ‘Perforamnce Measurement & Verification Analyst’ (PMVA) program of training and exams and professional accreditation of individuals who specialise in leading Integrated Energy Building Retrofits (IBERs) through the Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme.
A number of additional training programs and opportunities are currently under development and will be announced later this year.
EEC Professional Certifications
EEC Professional Certifications is an umbrella certification framework under which multiple professional certifications sit, including:
- Certified Emissions Reduction Leader for Commercial Buildings to project manage integrated building energy retrofits that slash energy bills and emissions;
- Certified EnMS Advisor to effectively engage and influence large energy using businesses to set up energy management systems (EnMS) that enable them to realise continuous improvement in energy performance and emissions reductions; and
- Certified Insulation Installer to support households with lowering heating and cooling bills whilst ensuring improved health and comfort outcomes are realised by safely and effectively installing insulation.
EEC Professional Certifications is delivered under the supervision of an expert Steering Committee and administered by the Energy Efficiency Council, Australia’s peak body for energy management, energy efficiency and demand flexibility. It demonstrates the EEC’s ongoing commitment to developing the future energy workforce for Australia.
