The Energy Management Association (EMA) is preparing for accreditation by ANSI for the Energy Management Professional (EMP) certification program. The process is similar to that of the CxA certification that ACG implemented in 2016.
A major requirement of accreditation is the development of a new certification exam that aligns with the subject matter established by DOE and other subject matter experts. The certification committee is nearing completion of the new exam, which will be ready for beta testing April 25 at CxEnergy 2017 in Orlando, Fla.
The beta exam is being offered free of charge for testing at CxEnergy. EMA is encouraging people to take the beta exam in order to help the organization evaluate the questions and validate the work performed by the committee. For currently certified EMPs who pass the beta exam, participation will provide 25 of the mandatory 50 credits toward recertification. For others, receipt of a passing score on the exam will provide eligibility for EMP certification.
