About the EMI ProgramThe Energy Management Institute (EMI) is a trainingprogram offered by the Department of CitywideAdministrative Services’ (DCAS) Division of EnergyManagement (DEM) in collaboration with the CityUniversity of New York’s School of ProfessionalStudies (SPS), CUNY Building Performance Lab(BPL), and the City’s Citywide Training Center(CTC).New York City has ambitious climate mitigationgoals, and aggressive reduction of greenhouse gasemissions is a key strategy. Since energy use inbuildings is a major source of emissions, buildingand energy management staff have a critical role inreducing energy. Through training, EMI helpsempower City staff to make energy-smart decisions,implement operational improvements, and advocatefor energy retrofits and clean energy projects acrossthe City’s portfolio.Today, through EMI, DEM offers a diverse set ofcourses that provide targeted competency-basedtraining and integrate national certificationrequirements. The courses are led by experiencedpractitioners in the field. They are open to all Citystaff free of charge.Who should take EMI courses?While many EMI courses are geared towardsbuilding operators and facilities management staff,there are offerings suitable for all staff involved inenergy management in City buildings.How do I know which EMI course is right for me?Staff can also select the courses that are right forthem based on the following factors: breadth oftopics covered as it relates to their jobresponsibilities, certifications required, level of ingoing expertise, and time commitment to course.Please see the Learning Paths section on page 41.What is a typical virtual EMI session experiencelike?EMI courses range in length from half-dayworkshops to months-long courses. Depending onthe course, there may be up to 20 students perclass. EMI’s virtual sessions are instructor-led, andstudents participate using virtual training technology(Zoom). Most sessions will still take the sameamount of time as an in-person training, andsessions will still have the same expectations onproject deadlines, exams, and class participation,such that the program complies with third-partycertification requirements.What do City staff need to do to participate in anEMI course?To participate, potential students should completethe following five steps: Enroll: To enroll in an EMI course, potentialstudents first should seek and receivepermission to participate in the course from theirdirect supervisor(s). They should then registeronline or complete the EMI Registration Formand email it to [email protected] by thecourse’s designated registration date. Participate: Students should attend sessions,complete online modules and exams, ifapplicable, and do required assignments andprojects. For tips on how to successfullyparticipate in a virtual session, go to page 8. Provide feedback: Students should complete in-session and post-session evaluations to providefeedback on their experience. EMI uses thisinformation to improve the course for futurestudents. Take any necessary certification exams:CUNY SPS helps City staff complete theirpaperwork to take certification exams andreceive credentials. DEM provides funding forCity staff to take credential exams one time. Apply lessons learned: Students are expectedto work towards implementing the energymanagement best practices that they havelearned at their agencies.4

What is the time commitment for the courses?Some EMI courses are multi-day, while others are asingle day or less. Each EMI course has differentrequirements for time spent in class for instructorled learning and outside of class to conductresearch, develop projects, complete online learningmodules or reading assignments, and prepare forexams. The Time Commitment to Course (TCC),which considers time spent in class and outside ofclass (for projects and self-study), as well as theduration of the course itself, can be classified asLow, Medium or High:Low up to seven hours a week, or, coursesthat only run for one dayMedium up to 10 hours a week, or, courses thatonly run for one weekHigh up to 15 hours a week overmultiple weeks, or, courses that include acertification exam that requires furthersubject matter studyWhen are EMI courses offered?EMI courses are offered according to a fall andspring semester schedule and take place duringstandard working hours. In addition, DEM offersselect courses during Learning Fairs.How can I register online?EMI accepts online applications for courses via theonline registration portal. Click the “Register Now”button on the homepage of the portal to begin theregistration process.
