Prospective CEM's attending the first Fundamentals for Energy Management Training (FEMT) course launched in Port Elizabeth

Fundamentals for Energy Management Training course launched

The Fundamentals for Energy Training (FEMT) course developed by the Energy Training Foundation (EnTF) was launched in Port Elizabeth recently. FEMT is an invaluable stepping stone to successful AEE Certification training as it offers the building blocks for persons who want to enter the energy field with no technical background, or those who need a refresher on the fundamentals of energy, or persons who specialise in one energy field, ie. electrical, and now need to embrace the other fields of thermal, chemical and mechanical energy.


FEMT assists persons in preparing for Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) and Certified Energy Auditor (CEA™) training through in-depth explanation of the various energy fields of chemical, electrical, mechanical and thermal energy fundamentals. Practical calculation exercises, applying formulae and tables, together with background to the calculation steps and fundamental basics forms the backbone of the course.

On completion of FEMT delegates are equipped with the knowledge to make better decisions with regard to where energy management opportunities lie, choosing the correct technologies and products for each specific required application, and understanding factors that affect and influence energy consumption like: refrigeration, hot water heating, power factor, latent heat, air humidity, heat transfer, building and industrial insulation, auditing methodology, energy loads, load shedding, peak clipping, data analysis of energy tariffs, load inventories, energy information and control systems, demand profiles, coal usage, oil usage, production vs electricity usage, fan systems, pump systems, lighting, compressed air, protocols, determining a baseline, measurement and verification, motor types, drives and throttling, building envelopes, radiation, retrofits, combustion, furnaces, boilers, steam, heat pump systems, pressure, filtration, and many more.

The next FEMT courses are scheduled for 23-25 July in Port Elizabeth, 27-29 August in Durban, 10-12 October 2012 at Emperors Palace Gauteng.
