Training of Walloon Energy Managers
For nearly 20 years, ICEDD has been commissioned by the Walloon public authorities to set up training for “Energy Managers” to complement its support mechanisms for the tertiary sector. Initially intended for municipalities, “EM training” in recent years has also been welcoming candidates from other branches in the sector: higher education establishments, collective housing, healthcare institutes and hospitals. In 20 years, nearly 1,000 Energy Managers have completed the training, which now certifies participants. The “basic” 13-day training programme is supplemented by a range of optional technical modules during which smaller groups of candidates have the opportunity to practice, in the field, the theory seen during the training course.
This training course served as the matrix for the Brussels “Energy Managers” training course (which has since become “Sustainable Building Training”), in which ICEDD is also involved.
