I'm pretty sure I've already posted a blog about this, as every few months, I revisit the credential that I use along side my name in my LinkedIn profile. While the credential carries the merits of technical know-how encompassing energy management and implementation, I've been in search of proper utilization of the credential as a step-up in the energy services employment market.
