In response to customer demand, we became the first UK supplier to develop a specialist energy management education programme.

Our Energy Managers Qualifications (EMQ) cover a full range of requirements, from general awareness building to the complete Energy Manager role.

As well as equipping your staff with practical skills they can use every day, these courses are designed to inspire cultural change that can support your business’s journey to Net Zero, as well as translating into significant savings to your bottom line.

All the training is delivered by experienced experts with a proven track record in successful energy management, and the flexibility to cater to your company’s individual requirements.

Each course is also accredited by the Energy Management Association (EMA) and the Low Energy Company (LEC).

Why use EMQ to upskill your staff?

  • Inspire energy saving behaviour to reduce consumption, costs and carbon emissions

  • Build in-house energy management capability and receive full apprenticeship funding for EMQ Expert*

  • All our courses are independently accredited by the EMA

  • EMQ is fully customisable and can be tailored to your branding and incorporate case studies specific to your organisation

  • Get certified as a Low Energy Company through encouraging your employees to take part
