The Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP) course is aimed at not only preparing participants to successfully pass the exam and earning the CBCP designation, but also reviewing all phases of commissioning projects and learning the best practices currently used.
At its core, building commissioning comprises quality-focused projects that serve to provide documented confirmation that building systems function according to criteria set forth in project documents to satisfy owners’ operational needs. Such projects have been proven to be important because buildings that operate suboptimally tend to have poor indoor air quality and comfort, consumer higher levels of energy, and produce equipment failures. Conversely, buildings that are properly commissioned typically have fewer change orders, tend to be more energy efficient, and have lower operation and maintenance cost. Commissioning can also restore existing buildings to high productivity through renovations, upgrades, and tune-ups of existing systems.
This five-day course is designed to meet the training needs of those who need to know the technical details of the commissioning process – from pre-design, through to the operations phase. The training also provides considerable detail on the fundamental principles of both new building commissioning and existing building commissioning (often called recommissioning). The trainer leads participants through an examination of all aspects of building commissioning by looking at dozens of case studies from successfully completed projects in hospitals, data centers, airports, university campuses, school districts, commercial buildings and more. Participants are also encouraged to produce real-world examples of their own through class dialogue and a few interactive exercises.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to book and take on the CBCP exam online via ProctorU.

Song formerly served as an Associate Director at the Energy Systems Lab of Texas A&M University, where he directed an internationally leading group of researchers, engineers, technicians and graduate students implementing building energy efficiency projects with an annual R&D/consulting budget over $8 million. He was the lead Principal Investigator for a comprehensive energy management program on the Texas A&M University campus, for which cumulative savings exceeded $90 million over a period of 16 years. Teamed with Dr. W. Dan Turner, the two personally walked through and assessed more than 600 buildings and campuses globally during the past three decades, leading cutting-edge data-driven energy conservation and asset/resource management programs that resulted in measured and documented avoided costs and energy savings over $250 million. They co-developed DOE/AEE’s MCBCP® certification course and AEE’s CBCP® International certification course. Song is also on the World Bank’s roster of energy efficiency experts.
In 2010, Song and Dr. Turner co-founded the Theory of Nodal Partners, which reflects their view of today’s world, IT, energy and utility supplies, transportation and consumption, smart grid of everything, interplay and readiness.
Currently, as the CEO/Technical Advisor at Austin, TX-based Bee (Building energy efficiency, BeeUSA.com), Song consults and lectures worldwide in the scientific fields of monitoring & platform-based life-cycle building commissioning, master planning, asset and resource management, ESPC, UESC, and PACE independent 3rd party M&V and integrated quality assurance, energy efficiency, O&M, sustainability and resiliency, smart buildings/campus/grid, CHP, TES, district and micro-grid, big data analytics and fog intelligence.
Ian Ball is a building engineer and team leader of commissioning services with TST. He started his career in 1991 as a construction engineer in Hong Kong. In 1994, he returned to Quebec and continued his career as a project manager on heat recovery projects and was involved in their design, installation, load calculations, controls, commissioning and monitoring. Between 2004 and 2011, Ian worked on numerous projects dealing with energy efficiency, commissioning and LEED certification. He has successfully obtained over $2M of financial incentives from various energy efficiency grant programs for his clients. In 2008 he received a Laureate (1st place) from the AQME Energia competition in the category existing buildings energy efficiency projects. Ian is a CBCP and also a member of the Mechanical Sub-Committee for the CSA Standard Z-320 for Building Commissioning and the Building Commissioning Association Eastern Canadian Chapter. He has successfully delivered numerous workshops for the D2$ program since 2009 (12 workshops, 6 in past 5 years).
