A brief description of the certificate program(s):

The School of Construction and Environment partnered with the Community Energy Association (CEA) to offer a certificate in the emerging field of community energy management. Community energy management spans the traditional silos of current and long range planning, policy, operations, engineering, transportation, finance, and others. Community Energy Management education will provide the knowledge and resources needed to manage the art and science of saving energy, decreasing emissions, and reducing energy costs across the community. This inter-disciplinary sequence of six online courses provides a unique opportunity to refresh familiar disciplines by viewing them through an energy lens while introducing new tools and concepts. Once the student completes all six courses they receive a certificate of completion from BCIT and are eligible to write the Certified Community Energy Manager (CCEM) credential exam offered through CEA.
