The Whole Building Design Guide® serves as your portal for obtaining IACET credits for the sessions you attended. Each training session at the Energy Exchange represents a distinct learning event with clear learning outcomes. Session attendees are required to pass a session assessment and complete a brief session survey in order to obtain credit. Attendees are eligible for 0.2 CEUs for sessions lasting 1.5 hours (e.g. Sessions 1-7); attendees are eligible for 0.1 CEUs for sessions lasting 1 hour (e.g. Sessions 8-9).
Register for an account on the WBDG to view the sessions you attended and take the assessments to obtain credit. Attendees should use the same email address associated with their Energy Exchange registration to register with the WBDG. If you have previously registered with the WBDG (e.g. attended and obtained CEUs at last year's event), simply log in to your account.
Once logged in, attendees can return to this page to see the sessions attended. Session assessments will be made available at the end of each day and must be completed no later than October 31, 2019. You must obtain a score of 80% in order to receive CEUs.
Register now for the 2019 Energy Exchange pre-event workshops offered by the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) on August 19, 2019, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. All pre-event workshops are free to attend.
