If you have both Res & Nonres CEAs (or need to register for a different combination of exams), please register for each exam portion separately by filling out and submitting this form once for each portion or cert. (Sorry for the inconvenience!)
** CABEC Members!  (without leaving this page) for significant exam discounts!
*** If you are a Current 2013 CEA who achieved your certification(s) PRIOR to 2018, make sure you’ve paid your 2018 Maintenance Fees to keep your certification current, and ensure you qualify for the shorter, discounted Re-Certification Exam(s).
*** Do you need some last minute prep before the exam? CEA Prep Workshops are now available!

  • ACM/Modeling Software: If you are taking the ACM/modeling portion of the CEA Exam, you need to make sure that you have the most recent energy modeling software installed BEFORE coming to the exam facility.
