The Energy Managers Qualification

The npower Business Solutions Energy Managers Qualifications (nBSEMQ) offer a range of independently accredited training over four levels – Foundation, Champion, Expert and Master – to cater for all levels of energy education. Each one offers participants practical information they can put into action to make a difference to energy efficiency in the workplace, and also at home.

Award-winning npower Energy Specialist Dave Horton has been instrumental in setting up the new qualifications. "Cultural change through education allows companies to make significant savings,” he says. “After all, the most energy efficient equipment is equipment that’s turned off when not in use."

As a result, the nBSEMQ courses are designed to raise awareness of how individual actions have personal, corporate and even global impacts that may never have previously been considered, resulting in financial and environmental benefits.

All the training will be delivered by experienced experts with a proven track record in successful energy management. The nBSEMQ courses are accredited by both the Energy Managers Association and the Low Energy Company.
