NEBB New Process Commissioning Certification

NEBB Logo 042015


Gaithersburg, MD – NEBB is pleased to announce the new Commissioning Process Certified Professional Program.   The NEBB Commissioning Process Certified Professional (CX-PC) certification will be DOE recognized; all certificants will meet any specification calling for “certification recognized by the Department of Energy through its Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines project”.  NEBB has submitted its preliminary application for ANSI Accreditation of this program.

Why is the certification important?

DOE Recognition:  NEBB used the Commissioning Professional Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines Certification Scheme and will be achieving accreditation under ISO/IEC 17024.  The Department of Energy (DoE) and General Services Administration (GSA) will recognize our CX-PC CP certification as high quality, industry endorsed, and nationally recognized.

Why will this credential be specified in the near future?

The purpose of the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines is to assist certification programs, workers, employers, building owners and managers, energy efficiency program administrators, and government officials in developing and identifying a more consistent and comparable workforce.

Proliferation through Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) Requirements:  Market demand for a high-quality workforce through government and industry recognition of accredited workforce credentialing programs.  For example: local AHJ commissioning ordinances, Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act, employers, building owners, certification programs, and more.

Will this certification replace the existing NEBB Technical Commissioning Certifications?

No.  NEBB’s Technical commissioning programs are in addition to this certification.  There is no Firm Certification available for the CX-PC program at this time.
