Aidan Harney, CPD Director for Engineers Ireland believes that:

“Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is essential for professional engineers as it allows them to update their skills and knowledge in line with today's accelerating technological changes. Energy management is an ever-growing concern for many of our members employed in businesses with large energy usage. Engineers Ireland's approval of the two Certification Europe ISO 50001 energy courses recognises them as being relevant for engineering professionals, well-developed and delivered to high standards, with expert facilitators. The Engineers Ireland CPD Registered logo is an easy way to spot quality training providers of high relevance with clear learning outcomes.”

Both trainers have a vast amount of industry experience within the energy sector and offer focused, detailed training on how to implement an energy management system (EnMs) within your business.

Speaking about the course John Ryan, Director of Services at Certification Europe and ISO 50001 course trainer commented that:

“The awarding of CPD accreditation by Engineer's Ireland affirms the premier caliber of the ISO 50001 training courses. The course has been a massive success, as we have run sold out courses in Dublin four times per year. Additionally, we ran it internationally in South Africa and Canada last year, and we will be running a new the ISO 50001 training course in London in 2013. Next year we expect the demand for the course to grow exponentially as companies have developed greater awareness of the benefits of completing ISO 50001 training, and in becoming certified to the ISO 50001 energy standard. We are currently the leading accredited ISO 50001 certification body in Europe, in conjunction with the principal provider of ISO 50001 energy training in Ireland and Europe, a status which we take great pride in holding. ”
