Workforce Development and Training
Enhance your career by developing skills in manufacturing energy efficiency. A variety of opportunities and certifications are available.
Engineering students at select universities receive hands-on training at small and medium-sized manufacturing plants. Graduates are sought after for their skill in conducting energy, waste, and productivity assessments.
Become a Qualified Specialist and train your staff or advise others. Qualified Specialists are industry professionals who have completed additional training in the use of DOE assessment and analysis software tools.
Become certified in helping manufacturers apply requirements of the ISO 50001 energy management standard or verify conformance to the standard. These professionals are helping companies assure they are maximizing the benefits from the standard.
Successful energy management depends on a union between technology application and management principles. Technology alone cannot achieve optimal savings; when coupled with energy management, greater savings can be achieved.
Training on various systems/components that use energy is available to help manufacturing plants and buildings run more efficiently. Learn how to use powerful decision support software tools to help identify, analyze, and implement energy savings opportunities. Training is offered both online and in person throughout the year and around the country. Webcasts on other topics are also available.
