Become a Certified Practitioner

The Institute for Energy Management Professionals (IEnMP) will administer the certification of individuals for Certified Practitioner in Energy Management Systems, SEP Lead Auditor, and SEP Performance Verifier. Candidates will be subject to a rigorous qualification exam and, once certified, periodic professional enrichment requirements. IEnMP is certified by the American National Standards Institute to provide these types of certification. The program to certify Certified Systems Practitioners is under development.

Teams led by Georgia Tech Research Organization and UL DQS, Inc. are under license by the U.S. Department of Energy to provide training for individuals interested in becoming a Certified Practitioner in Energy Management Systems, SEP Lead Auditor, and SEP Performance Verifier. Read DOE’s announcement for more information about the teams. These trainings will prepare participants for the exams that are administered separately by IEnMP, but the training is not mandatory for certification.
