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.

This five-day course is designed to meet the technical training requirements of those seeking to gain comprehensive knowledge of the commissioning process from the pre-design to operational phases. 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 you 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.
