The 30-hour Energy Management Certificate offered by Extended Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno examines the essentials of building-energy management technologies, regulatory compliance issues and increasing efficiency and return on investment. Participants will investigate the latest energy cost-reduction strategies and energy resource management techniques while earning a recognizable educational credential from the University demonstrating mastery of key skills and concepts integral to success in the increasingly competitive energy management field.

Designed for building managers, facility/plant managers, construction planners, engineers, maintenance personnel, small-business owners, green energy entrepreneurs and others interested in energy resources, the program provides tools to effectively assess the energy efficiency of a building and to identify ways to cut energy costs, eliminate unnecessary energy waste, ensure compliance and save money. Taught by energy management expert Scott Terrell, M.A., course sessions focus on real-world energy- and money-saving strategies to reduce dependence on nonrenewable resources and improve the bottom line.
