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. Qualified Specialists in your area are available to help optimize process heating, steam, pumps, fan, and compressed air systems.
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.
