The Pan Arab Certified Energy Management Professionals program (PA-CEMP) is an in-depth cross border professional preparatory training and certification program for Energy Mangers tailored for the Arab region. The Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) in collaboration with League of Arab States Energy department saw the need to introduce the PA-CEMP program. The Executive Bureau of the Arab Ministerial Council of Electricity endorsed the program during their 32th session on May 31, 2016.
PA-CEMP aims to assist energy efficiency policy makers and program administrators in planning and implementing Energy Efficiency programs and measures in the Arab region. Through a recognized certificate, energy management professionals will be equipped with the latest technologies, energy essentials and the effective means with solutions to reduce energy consumption in a cost effective approach and achieve energy targets in line with the Arab Energy Efficiency Guideline. In addition, the program will support boosting job creation in the Arab region by reducing energy imports and delivering cost effective measures. By end of 2019, the PA-CEMP is being offered in 5 countries in collaboration with energy ministries and other relevant national entities.
