Stefan van Rooij, Maintenance & Facilities Engineer (Waikato District Health Board)
  • The Energy Carbon Manager Professional Course provides great practical insights to energy management with ‘real world’ examples from experienced professionals. It also gives you the tools to adapt a systematic approach to continuous improvement.  I would recommend this course to anyone who manages energy in their current role and wants to reduce energy costs and improve their energy and carbon performance.
Ronja Lidenhammar, Technical Account Manager (Enviro Mark Solutions Ltd)
  • I would highly recommend that businesses hesitating between one or two participants go for two ..... Much more valuable than just one person taking the knowledge back to the organisation and explaining to other the benefits of what has been learned.
Roseline Klein, Sustainability Manager (Watercare Services Ltd)
  • Being able to share in the experience of the presenters over four days is a big opportunity not to be missed .... the 50001 checklist presented as part of the course is alone worth the fee.
