This course is designed in part to provide a useful preparatory vehicle for AEE’s Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP) program.

Commissioning is the process of ensuring that building systems are designed, installed, functionally tested, and capable of being operated and maintained according to the owner's operational needs. Commissioning also can restore existing buildings to high productivity through renovation, upgrade and tune-up of existing systems. This program will examine all aspects of building commissioning, including project scheduling, roles and responsibilities of the project team, new building commissioning, monitoring-based commissioning, retro and recommissioning of existing buildings, system by system commissioning requirements, TAB and verification procedures, the LEED rating system, building code issues, and commissioning tools and technologies.

The CBCP exam will be administered at the close of instruction on day four of each seminar -- only to those who have qualified in advance to sit for the exam by submitting a completed CBCP application and fee.

Please Note: In order to qualify to sit for the CBCP exam, you must submit your completed CBCP application, along with a $300 application fee. For information on obtaining your CBCP application form, or for further information on the CBCP program, visit
