ABOUT THE SEMINAR

In addition to providing a useful preparatory vehicle for AEE's Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP) program, this five- day program is designed to meet the training requirements of those who need to know the technical details of the commissioning process. Though covering many of the same topics addressed in AEE's shorter Fundamentals of Building Commissioning seminar, this more comprehensive course will go into further technical detail, and will include several workshops where participants are challenged with to produce real Cx deliverables, and to come up with practical solutions to typical Cx problems.

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, retro and recommissioning of existing buildings, system by system commissioning requirements, TAB and verification procedures, the LEED rating system, project economic analysis, building code issues, and commissioning tools and technologies.

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