It is always a good idea to start with the basics and good that you recognise this should you not have much experience in the Energy Industry. So Basic Principles of Energy (BPE) is the first building block. The Introduction to Energy management (IEMT) refreshes all the mechanical, electrical, chemical, thermodynamic and energy management basic principles. Once you have completed that you can decide which area you would like to specialise in:

  • The Measurement & Verification market – a new developing industry in SA.
  • Energy management market.
  • Energy Auditing.
  • Or Renewable energy
