NIKA Engineer Receives Coveted EMP Certification

Rockville, MD, December 21, 2015 — NIKA, a global provider of architecture, engineering, facilities and operations and maintenance solutions for government, announced today that Senior Engineer, Alok Kumar, has earned his Energy Management Professional (EMP) Certification.

“This is a great achievement for Alok and the firm,” says President and Chief Executive Officer, Kabir Chaudhary. “We are very proud of the hard work and dedication that went into earning this certification.”

The EMP certification, administered by the Energy Management Association (EMA), raises the bar for energy-related certifications. These individuals have a deep understanding of energy concepts and extensive experience on how building systems operate. There are currently only 91 professionals in the country who hold this designation.

The EMA is dedicated to advancing the quality of energy management products and services that benefit the building owner and is the leading organization for commissioning-based energy management. The EMP certification was originally designed by the AABC Commissioning Group (ACG) and is now managed by the EMA.

Professionals with three years of energy-related experience are open to take the exam. The certification involves completing an intensive one-and-a-half day seminar to understand the energy management process and how it can be applied. They must then take the EMP Exam within six months of attending the seminar.

“We are looking forward to the opportunities that will arise with energy audits,” remarked Kumar. “NIKA has completed audits for the government that address the imposed mandates and, with this certification, we will be able to do more to address energy efficiency in buildings.”
