Engineers Ireland awards CPD approval to Certification Europe

ISO 50001 Energy Management System Implementation and ISO 50001 Energy Management Lead Auditor Training courses receive CPD stamp of approval.

Dublin, 7 November 2012 – Certification Europe’s ISO 50001 Energy Management Training courses are the first ISO energy management courses to be CPD approved through Engineers Ireland’s official Register of Training Providers. The ISO 5001 training courses are designed around the ISO 50001 energy standard and offer an in-depth overview of the requirements of implementing an energy management system (EnMs) within an organisation. The newly CPD approved courses are ‘ISO 50001 Energy Management System Implementation Training’ and ‘ISO 50001 Energy Management Lead Auditor Training,’ both of which can be run in-house or publically by Certification Europe.

Commenting on the approval, John Power, Director General Engineers Ireland, the professional body for engineers and engineering in Ireland, stated:

“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. The Engineers Ireland Registered Training Provider logo is an assurance that the training provider has met the best-practice criteria laid down in our quality assessment procedures. Partner companies like Certification Europe work with us to supplement our core CPD programme, offering further learning opportunities to engineering professionals.”

The energy management courses two trainers Dr. John Ryan and Dermot Gibbons are the first accredited ISO 50001 energy auditors in Western Europe. 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 approval by Engineer’s Ireland affirms the premier calibre of the ISO 50001 energy training courses.  The energy course has been a massive success, as we have run four sold out ISO 50001 training courses over the past 12 months. Additionally, we ran it internationally in South Africa and Canada last year, and we will be running a new 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.”

The major benefits of completing ISO 50001 energy training to an organisation is that it allows you to understand the requirements necessary to implement, maintain and improve an Energy Management System (EnMS). Additional it will aid you in developing a framework for identifying energy and cost saving opportunities and in initiating a systematic approach to achieving continual internal energy performance improvement for your business.

Certification Europe launched its energy management training courses in 2008, initially based around the Irish Energy Standard IS 393, then the European Energy Standard En 16001 and finally the ISO 50001, which was launched in June 2011.  Over 400 people have completed the energy management system implementation and auditing courses to date. The course have  been attended by a vast array of well-known companies such as Abbott Pharmaceutical, Aviva, Bord Gáis Energy, Boston Scientific, Clearstream, Diageo, DCU, Dublin Aerospace, Energie, Irish Cement, the International Criminal Court,  Intel, Roadbridge, Trinity College Dublin, Vodafone and Wessex Water. The variety of sectors which the above companies are based in indicates that the ISO 50001 energy management standard and the energy training courses are applicable to organisations both large and small throughout Ireland and globally.
