Description: The Fundamentals to Energy Management Training (FEMT) provides the basics to be able to understand holistic energy management that encompasses electrical, mechanical and thermal system. Prepare for further training in the energy engineering professions.

FEMT was developed in South Africa by South Africans to provide a platform for persons wishing to enter the energy industry, or persons wishing to re-skill themselves in the fundamental basics that makes up holistic energy management before embarking on further AEE training, specifically assisting with preparation for Certified Energy Manager (CEM®) training.

The training provides full theoretical explanations accompanied with sufficient practical exercises to ensure delegates become as proficient as possible in the fundamental concepts that make up holistic energy management. There is no examination, but examination techniques and advice is provided to assist those in planning for further AEE programmes where there are examinations.
