When and Where?
                                          2. Wednesday, October 26th 10a-12:30pm at
                                             WorkSource Tualatin, 7995 SW Mohawk
                                             St, Tualatin, OR

                   Complete the AEE application for CEM before the orientation. Here
                    is the link: CEM Application (NO application fee is required.)
                   Pre-Register for the orientation with the WorkSource Program
                    Coordinator (contact info listed below)
                   Each participant should bring a calculator with exponents. It is
                    much better for a participant to bring a calculator that he/she knows
 IMPORTANT          how to operate quickly and confidently than one that is brand new.
                   Cell phones, PDAs, cameras, computers (with one exception — see
  Key Tips for
                    next sentence) and other wireless devices are required to be off

                    during the exam. Laptop exception: Use of laptop computers will be
                    allowed for the sole purpose of accessing AEE approved pre-
                    downloaded electronic reference materials.
                   We recommend business casual dress. Participants should be

                             comfortable during the course and exam.
                            Participants should refresh their algebra and equation solving skills
                             prior to the course. The course and exam are calculationally
                             intensive, and assume that participants are up on algebra principles
                             and equation solving.
                            On the exam, there will be an opportunity to answer 130 questions in
                             a four hour period. That works out to 1.85 minutes/question. Not all
                             questions involve calculations, but facility with algebra and equation
                             solving will pay big dividends on the exam.
                            Homework will be assigned each day, and we recommend evening
                             study groups during the course to work sample CEM problems.
                             Working problems is one of the best ways to get ready for the exam.
                             The more problems one works prior to the exam, the better chance
                             one has to pass the exam. The instructors will emphasize the use of
                             units in solving problems.

The Certified Energy Manager Course is scheduled for December 5th – 9th, 2011.
