What Is the Difference Between CBCP and Advanced Building Recommissioning?

Commissioning is the process of ensuring that building systems are designed, installed, functionally tested, and capable of being operating and maintained according to the owner’s operational needs, while recommissioning is the re-optimisation of (inspection, diagnostics, repairs) of equipment in existing buildings. With two courses covering these topics, this comparative overview can help you determine which course is right for you.

 

Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP) vs. Advanced Course on Building Recommissioning (RCx)

The CBCP covers commissioning, while the RCx covers recommissioning. The CBCP prepares participants for an American certification from the AEE that is recognised throughout North America, whereas the RCx does not grant the right to use a new title, but renders participants eligible for recognition as a recommissioning agent from the BEIE. Recognition requires making a request pursuant to the successful completion of the exam. Issued certificates indicate that participants have successfully completed this advanced course and are signed by the Director General of the CanmetENERGY Centre of Natural Resources Canada.

 

CIET CBCP vs. RCx

 

Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP)

Course Duration: 5 days

Overview: In addition to providing preparation for AEE’s Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP) certification program, this five-day course is designed to meet the training needs of those who need to know the technical details of the commissioning process. This comprehensive course goes into considerable technical detail on the fundamental principles of both new building commissioning and existing building commissioning (also called re-commissioning or retro-commissioning).

 

This program examines all aspects of building commissioning. Dozens of case studies from successfully completed projects are presented, including hospitals, data centers, airports, university campuses, school districts, commercial buildings, district heating and cooling, and research facilities taken from the instructors’ more than 40 years of combined experience in commissioning.  Participants are encouraged to produce real-world examples from their own personal experience to share with the class.

Advanced Course on Building Recommissioning (RCx)

Course Duration: 4 days

Overview: This four-day Advanced Course on Recommissioning (RCx) covers all the stages of the process: planning, investigation, implementation, hand-over and monitoring. These stages are presented in detail to allow trainees to develop a coherent understanding of the entire process and reap all anticipated benefits. The fundamental principles regarding the use of mechanical systems in buildings are discussed and good practices for testing and verification are examined to help trainees develop in-depth understanding of the investigation stage.

 

To share insight on how to maintain the benefits of the RCx process throughout the life cycle of buildings, the course not only teaches building operating staff on the persistence strategies to be implemented, but also highlights the appropriate interventions in energy monitoring to be carried out by third parties.
