Energy Management Diploma

The most in-depth and proven energy management training of its kind.

The Institute of Energy Professionals® (IEP) is proud to partner with North Carolina State University to offer the Energy Management Diploma (EMD) Program. The three-week course is unlike anything else of its kind, and has been attended by great people.

Interested in more than just a certification? Couple your PEM certification with a Diploma in Energy Management from North Carolina State University – a top-25 graduate engineering program in the United States. The three-week program at NC State is the only one in the United States to offer a Diploma upon successful completion.

The program broadened my knowledge of energy management and enlightened me with new ways to approach problems I may encounter in the future.

Examination Requirements

Once the course requirements have been fulfilled, the student can sit for the Energy Management Diploma exam. The exam is a capstone assessment of the entire course. If desired, the exam can also serve as the examination for the Professional Energy Manager® (PEM) exam, allowing the student to obtain both the Diploma and Certification with a single exam.

Examination Process

IEP’s philosophy for examination is to try and make the exam as practical as its course content. When your peers or boss asks you a question about energy management, or needs a calculation performed for a certain energy efficiency measure, do they make you sit in a closed-room, with a timed clock, and only a pen and specifically approved calculator? NO! They want you to use your skills and resources to give them the best answer. As such, the exam is open-book, open-notes, open-resources, and is self-administered by the student on their own schedule. IEP has found this is the best way to truly measure student capability and long-term learning, verses short term recall from exam cramming.
