These workshops/ advanced training , designed  for professionals holding of a CMVP certificate, have been developed to complete general knowledge and get credits: :

  1. a) Complete the general knowledge of M & V acquired during the internship EVO Level 3
  2. b) Enable students to get, where appropriate, credit for a three-year renewal of the CMVP.

Public and Eligibility

Holders of valid CMVP or CMVP -IT. or equivalent level knowledge or experiences.

 These Measurement and verification advanced  training have been running for 3 years in Switzerland and France 

Form & Content

4-hour workshops, including where appropriate : personal preparation and / or personal work validated after the course.  A full day training equivalent

They generally comprise coursework, followed by a tutorial portion. In some cases, depending on the themes , it is possible that the subject is spread over two or more sessions of 4 hours each.

Details of training :

Statistical tools for Measurement and Verification

Isolated options. Advanced case studies : EPA Central Air treatment in a school building

Isolated options. Case studies developed : Lighting renovation in a building

Global options. Case studies developed : Multiple Renovations in a building

Complex non-linear models approach ” piecewise ”

Complex models, using advanced modeling tools : UT3

All training session include documents, slides, all given at the end of the training.



STATISTICS for measurement and verification

target: this module is related to annex B of  IPMVP. it is a statistics basic  review and show how to use them in M & V.


introduction to statistics

descriptive statistics

  • – frame
  • – simple and statified simpling
  •  linear regression
  • – scatter diagram
  • – correlations
  • – linear regression and multivariate
  • – deviant management
  • – validation test
  • – basic models.

uncertainty calculation

– review of uncertainty in M & V

– definitions

– 7 steps of calculation processus

basic formulation

exercise: home work made by the students withing 2 weeks to be verified and corrected.


Workshop/ ADVANCED Training 2

Energy Conservation Measure (ECM)  on air central processing unit  in a school building

target: this advanced training is focused on option A or B  retrofit isolation. the students have a  case preparation home work before the training. after they have an exercise to do under teacher supervision.


case presentation,

data references:  baseline

student preparation work on the M & V choice, data qualification, additional data to be got if needed

training course option A & B , methodology applied.


– identification one or several ECM

– perimeter of measurement

– possible option

– measurement period (ante , post)

– option choice and explanation

– equation family to be use

– non routine adjustment

– uncertainty savings  level determination

– P.M.V draw-up




Retrofit Isolation. examples: lighting renovation 


target: master the M & V  plan elaboration with retrofit  Isolation A & B.  the students have to prepare the training with a personal case example and complete it under teacher supervision.

a training course is done on retrofit isolation to start.


case study


option choice

working group

– ECM identification

– measurement perimeter
