EVO offers a full range of M&V related training programs ranging from a one-hour introductory workshop to several days advanced training. Our programs are delivered by highly skilled instructors. EVO-approved instructors are M&V experts authorized by EVO´s Training Committee to provide trainees with M&V trainings. Instructors have a teaching background and experience in the field of M&V. They are approved by the Training Committee and must renew their instructor status periodically. Based on the degree of knowledge and expertise in the M&V field, EVO qualifies instructors into three different levels: L2, L3, and L4, each of them with various attributions.
L2 INSTRUCTOR (INTRODUCTORY) – can teach only introductory training (up to 1-day). L2 instructors have a teaching background and experience in the field of M&V. They have been approved by the Training Committee and must renew their status every three years.
L3 INSTRUCTOR (M&V FUNDAMENTALS) – can teach the M&V Fundamentals and IPMVP course. L3 instructors can also teach introductory L2 training. L3 instructors must meet all L2 instructor requirements, and additionally, they must have practical experience in M&V and preparation/implementation of M&V Plans. L3 instructors must go through a mentoring process before being formally approved by the Training Committee. They must renew their status every three years.
L4 INSTRUCTOR (ADVANCED) – can teach advanced M&V training. L4 instructors can also teach introductory classes as well as the M&V Fundamentals and IPMVP course. L4 instructors must meet all L3 instructor requirements. Additionally, they must show an in-depth knowledge in one of the M&V topics. Before becoming an L4 instructor, the candidate must have delivered several times the M&V Fundamentals and IPMVP as an L3 instructor. L4 instructors must go through a stringent evaluation process consisting of preparing a technical paper on a specific M&V topic and deliver a master class before being formally approved by the Training Committee. All L4 instructors must renew their status every three years. Some L4 instructors can be qualified as a mentor. Mentors can evaluate candidate-instructors to become EVO-approved L3 instructors.
