Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP)

5 Days




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.
