I think the classroom Advanced Energy Manager course of the was excellent. The structure of the course is good, starts with basic elements and recap. The first 3 fundamental lectures by Chris are crucial for everyone to lay a good foundation. The structure of the course and technical elements which will enable me to demonstrate speak with confidence on a range of energy management topics during my interview for Chartered Energy manager.

In terms of using the training in my work, the project is a live work in progress. Great ideas on strategic energy planning and energy leadership. I would change nothing about the programme, it is a great course, well administered, managed and delivered. I really enjoyed it, liked everything about it, and it met all my expectations... 9 days of listening, learning and conversation.

This course exceeded my expectations. It was delivered by a number of energy industry professionals with years of experience, who all ensured that each topic was explained and talked through until everyone in the room was comfortable with it. Discussions and knowledge sharing were encouraged during every lesson, creating a great networking atmosphere. We started the course as a group of strangers, but even though the course finished almost a year ago, we still carry on meeting over good food or a drink to discuss the energy industry and our next career steps.
