Certified Health Care Facility Manager (CHCFM) program

Schneider Electric Energy University

Energy University, Schneider Electric’s online, on-demand resource, where anyone interested in the energy industry can undertake free training courses, has been officially endorsed by the Institute of Hospital Engineering, Australia (IHEA) as a recognised source of educational and developmental material.

Linking with the IHEA certification and education initiative, known as the IHEA Certified Health Care Facility Manager (CHCFM) program, Schneider Electric’s Energy University will expand the available learning resources for IHEA members, particularly in the field of energy efficiency.

The courses on offer through Energy University are highly beneficial to IHEA members and will enable Members  to enhance  their knowledge in a variety of topics related to healthcare infrastructure management, all converging to the very important area of energy management. IHEA encourages all members to undertake training as part of the CHCFM program.

IHEA members who undertake Energy University online courses will receive recognition on completion of the course in the form of Continuous Professional Development (CDP) Credits, through IHEA. These credits form the basis of IHEA’s Certified Health Care Facility Manager accreditation, which helps to ensure the industry is continually up to date with new technologies and systems which are available to the sector.

In addition to the Energy University courses, Schneider Electric, in partnership with the Institute of Energy Professionals, offers the Professional Energy Manager (PEM) certification exam. The exam is part of the internationally recognised Energy Management Diploma Program, being taught at North Carolina State University, US, and is one of only two programs recognised as being adequate training for government energy managers. The primary objective of the PEM qualification is intended to enrich the talents and knowledge base of professional energy managers.

“Australian businesses and individuals have a compelling reason to learn how to better manage their energy use,” Phil Ridler, General Manager, Energy Management and Solutions, Schneider Electric Pacific said.  “As Australia moves to a low carbon economy, there will be increasing pressure to apply energy efficiency improvements to healthcare facilities around the country. As a company we can provide any number of solutions, products and support, but our belief is that the greatest impact that can be made on sustainability and energy management is through increased awareness and education which, over time will result in behaviour change.”

The IHEA is the professional organisation for engineers and engineering facility managers employed in the private and public healthcare sectors. It includes consultants, and those working in roles such as Hospital Engineer, Health Facility Manager, Architect, Consulting Engineer, Builder, Contractor in the health care field, and all those engaged in Health Care Facilities Management.
