Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP)


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.

Advanced Measurement and Verification (MV)


Measurement and verification (M&V) is the process of using measurements to determine the actual energy savings generated by energy management projects at individual sites. Common M&V activities include metering,​ data collection and processing, transparent savings calculations, monitoring, quality assurance, and​ third-party report verifications. The two-day Advanced Measurement and Verification training program provides practical exercises and advanced concepts to individuals seeking to enhance their understanding of M&V. This program is a valuable complement to the theoretical knowledge acquired through common M&V certification courses and designations.
