Certified Energy Audit Professional (CEAP)

Do you evaluate and assess energy consumption, identify waste, and suggest cost-cutting measures? Do you aspire to be a first-line professional who can help make significant efficiency improvements, enhance energy use, and ultimately reduce greenhouse gas emissions? Energy Auditors evaluate and analyze a facility’s energy consumption, identify energy conservation opportunities, and make recommendations for reducing or optimizing energy consumption.

This program prepares candidates for the CEA Certification Examination. It is also intended to provide participants with an in-depth and technical review of energy auditing, the essential steps required to evaluate facility energy systems from preliminary surveys through ASHRAE® Level 3 Energy Audits, and how to analyze and deliver the results to your client.

Certification Program Objectives: 

  • Pre-audit requirements to assure accurate data collection, measurement and verification
  • What you need to know when conducting audits of building equipment and systems, including lighting, pumps, motors, drives, HVAC, water systems, etc.
  • The financial and economic aspects of an energy audit and how they can affect an organization’s bottom line.
  • How to analyze utilities and the effects of energy demand, energy rates, energy accounting, and performance contracting on an energy audit
  • How to identify energy conservation opportunities that are “low-hanging fruit”

Certifying Examination:

  • To be certified as CEAP, student should take up a 1.5 hours exam at the designated examination centers.
  • The qualifying exam would consist of 50 multiple choice questions, testing core certification modules.
  • Professionals with relevant experience and other qualifying criteria may be exempted from the examination.

Materials Provided:

  • Presentation slides
  • Study references


Upon successful completion of the CEAP training, participants will receive a “Certified Energy Audit Professional” certificate.
