Application:
Attendees are encouraged to complete a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) Exam Application or Energy Manager in Training (EMIT) Exam Application 3-4 weeks prior to taking the exam. DO NOT INCLUDE ANY PAYMENT WITH THE FORM. (Because you are registering through the local Austin–San Antonio Chapter, the $400 APPLICATION FILING FEE and the EXAMINATION TESTING FEE that is requested on the application form ARE ALREADY INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE LOCAL 5-DAY TRAINING.)

If an applicant doesn’t meet one of the CEM eligibility criteria, they can still apply for the Energy Manager In-Training certification, EMIT. The EMIT certification is valid for six years, which allows applicants time to meet the full CEM certification eligibility requirements. Anyone who misses the 3-week deadline for the application submittal can still take the exam, but will need to complete an application waiver form on exam day and then submit the CEM or EMIT application at a later date. We encourage all students to submit the application ahead of time so they can be pre-approved for the certification. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Helen Johnson / 770-447-5083 x.218 / helen@aeecenter.org.
