The Department of Energy has recently made a decision to more closely align their programs to ISO 50001. As a result, the DOE launched an on ramp program called “50001 Ready” for companies to embrace the ISO 50001 standard. This also led to changes in the IEnMP certification offering.
The first change for IEnMP is to the name of the Certified Practitioner in Energy Management Systems (CP EnMS) credential. The new name will be “50001 EnMS Certified Practitioner” (50001 EnMS CP).
Also a new 50001 EnMS CP exam is targeted to be released in the May 2018 timeframe. New applicants for the 50001 EnMS CP certification will be required to take the new exam.
Existing CP EnMS certified persons will continue to be able to maintain their existing certification.
