CleanEdison has partnered with the Association of Energy Engineers to offer training towards the AEE Building Energy Sustainability Technician (BEST) Standard. Noting a lack of reputable, nationally recognized standards for entry-level professionals in the commercial building space, CleanEdison and the AEE are proud to introduce a program that improves the practice of building efficiency and sustainability and encourages continuing education and career development for building science professionals including architects, engineers, building maintenance and operations staff, as well as management.
This four-day training covers essential building energy efficiency concepts such as Financial Considerations for Equipment Purchases, Building Utilities, Energy Audits and Instrumentation, Lighting, Energy Savings, HVAC Systems, Heating & Refrigeration Systems, and Controls and Compressed Air Systems.
Proper implementation of energy management strategies requires an understanding of best practices to reducing energy consumption in existing systems. CleanEdison’s BEST training is intended to do just this, by helping building owners operate greener, reduce emissions, improve comfort for building occupants, and most importantly, helps owners save on utility bills.
The AEE is one of the most widely recognized and respected professional credentialing organizations for energy efficiency, green building, and renewable energy industries. The BEST curriculum not only incorporates material developed as part of the AEE Certified Energy Manager (CEM) and Certified Sustainable Development Technician (CSDT) programs, it also includes lessons and best practices identified by the U.S. Department of Energy Building Technologies Program. Students can obtain 2.8 CEU’s for completing this training.
