Two higher education course modules are available for introducing the concepts of energy management systems. In addition to offering students the basic knowledge of energy management system implementation, a DOE course completion certificate is provided to help differentiate students in the job market. Multiple universities have integrated these modules to help prepare the next generation of energy managers. 


Three energy management systems-related credentials are available - 50001 Certified Practitioner in Energy Management Systems (EnMS implementer), SEP Performance Verifier (3rd party energy performance improvement validation), and ISO 50001 Lead Auditor (3rd party verification of meeting requirements of the standard)


50001 Ready’s free cohort technical assistance is open to US-based industrial, commercial, and government sites that are not engaged in another publicly-provided energy management program (e.g. utility SEM program).
