Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP)

Online

The Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP) course is designed to present all phases of commissioning projects and current best practices to ultimately prepare participants to take the exam and earn the CBCP designation. At its core, building commissioning involves quality focused projects that serve to provide documented confirmation that building systems function as intended (by both design and operational criteria), thereby meeting the operational requirements of owners. Projects of this nature have proven to be important because buildings that operate suboptimally tend to have poor indoor air quality and comfort, consume higher levels of energy, and lead to equipment failures. Properly commissioned buildings typically have fewer change orders, tend to be more energy efficient, and have lower operation and maintenance costs. Additionally, commissioning serves to restore existing buildings to a state of high productivity through the implementation of renovations, upgrades, and tune-ups of existing systems.

Planning and Selecting GHG Projects

Online

"Organizations that own and operate buildings are increasingly setting aggressive targets to reduce their GHG emissions. These targets are driven by factors such as increasing carbon taxes, carbon pollution limits, corporate social responsibility, and tenant demands. Additionally, extreme heat and wildfire events are pushing us to create more climate resilient buildings. To meet these aggressive targets, many organizations are shifting their focus from energy efficiency measures to decarbonization projects. These projects involve more stakeholders, higher costs, and more complex technical and operational considerations. Planning for a low carbon transition and selecting decarbonization projects can be complicated. Where do we start? Which projects or buildings should we prioritize? How do we determine the best path to decarbonize our portfolios? This course guides participants through the process of selecting the best path. Case studies are used to illustrate important decarbonization project considerations and success factors. Visit cietcanada.com to learn more about this course and to register (website link below) "
