Another 112 SA energy professionals join international rankings

EMIT candidates

During this time 2 287 candidates have been trained which represents almost a 1 000 companies that have sent candidates for training in all the various industries like mines, consulting firms, ESCOs, Universities, OEMs, government departments, utilities, water and waste water, chemical, and every single industrial sector in the country from food and beverage, automotive, pulp and paper, and the list goes on.

In 2013 just short of 400 candidates were trained of which 28 received international Certification as Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals (CMVP®) with the AEE, and 74 as Certified Energy Managers (CEM®) at the Legends in Energy Certification Ceremony held by the EnTF in South Africa in November 2013.

The AEE has been developing the energy engineering field for over 36 years. In total AEE is active in 90 countries with 14 000 CEMs which are collectively active in every single continent in the world, and just short of 3 000 CMVPs in 28 countries. 

With the vast amounts of cash invested by many organisations and financiers in energy savings, the demand for CMVP to ensure transparent and accurate reporting of energy savings has resulted in CMVP being translated from English to Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian-Portuguese, French and Mahindran. 

AEE certification programmes involve not only the training sessions and achieving a 70% passmark for the prescribed examination in the time allocated, but it requires experience and previous qualifications where experiential work is insufficient. Once Certification is awarded, it is not a case of getting your ‘green badge’ and that’s it, re-Certification is required every three years to make sure AEE Professionals remain proficient within their respective energy disciplines.

Receiving Professional Certification status with the AEE is truly and unsurpassed achievement in the energy industry, and not only in South Africa.

The Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE) is the local chapter of the AEE, and the Energy Training Foundation (EnTF) is the sole approved training partner of the AEE for the Southern African region. All AEE courses are CPD accredited for between two to five credits for ECSA, and EnTF is also an accredited EWSETA training provider.
