Certification as a Certified Energy Analyst (CEA) or Associate Energy Analyst (AEA) signifies that a consultant understands the California Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6) and has an understanding of broader energy efficiency issues, is committed to providing quality service to clients, and that he/she has made a commitment to conduct business in an ethical fashion. Because CEAs have also make a commitment to ongoing educational requirements, attending advanced industry training puts them on the cutting edge.
Certified Energy Analysts (CEAs) are individuals who have demonstrated their mastery of the Residential and/or Nonresidential California Energy Standards through the following steps.
- Pass the appropriate two-part (Multiple Choice and ACM Modeling) CEA Exam for Residential and/or Nonresidential.
- Have verified experience and/or education and other certifications related to Title 24 compliance work.
- Participate in a Professional Practices Workshop (PPW), sponsored by CABEC.
- Attend at least nine hours per year of continuing education training.
Since energy consultants are not regulated by the state, CABEC designed the CEA to be a statement of an energy consultant’s working knowledge and understanding of the California Energy Efficiency Standards. When an energy consultant is a Certified Energy Analyst it is a statement to a building department, builder, architect, or homeowner of the professional skills and knowledge of that energy consultant. This certification has become a highly regarded symbol of expertise within the industry and with regard to Title 24 in California.
