Planning

For training, the IFS2E inter-group planning is scheduled six months in advance. It can be found in the « Training » heading.

For intra-goup training (inside a dedicated company) please contact us. We take registrations for a minimum threshold of trainees and type of training.

IFS2E also offers on-demand training. For more details, please contact us via the contact section of the website: Contact

CMVP

The CMVP certification is based on the use of the 2012 version of the International Protocol for the Measurement and Verification of Energy Performance (IPMVP).

Certification based on:

  1. Recognition of the skills of experts
  2. 2.5 days training covering in detail the concepts and practical approaches related to the development and implementation of plans for measurement and verification of performance of energy efficiency projects
  3. An exam (which allows recognition by the use of the title CMVP)

IPMVP

Protocol Overview

Training 1 : Introduction to IPMVP

Duration: 1 day

This presentation provides an understanding of the issues and principles to develop a plan for Measurement and Verification. It is targeted to policy makers project owners and Chief CPE projects.

Training 2 : IPMVP Level 3 certification option with CMVP

This course prepares students to review the optional CMVP (Certified Professional in M & V) which will take place on the third day following the course. It offers a full version of IPMVP application renovations, new buildings, and is therefore aimed at students who want a good level of expertise.

Who is the training for ?

Technical building systems engineers, people in charge of maintenance and operation of technical building systems , building owners , all CPE actors.

 

Plan: the first 2 days

1 . introduction

2 . Key concepts

3 . Examples

4 . Theory

5 . Detailed points: Options A, B, C and D
