The AABC Commissioning Group (ACG) will conduct a workshop on Nov. 12, 2018, in Atlanta, followed by an administration of the exam for the Certified Commissioning Authority (CxA) credential for approved candidates.
The accelerated 1-day workshop covers all aspects of commissioning ranging from design reviews and OPRs, to functional testing and commissioning documentation, and addresses both new and existing building commissioning. The CxA Workshop is approved by the AIA for 5 LU/HSW continuing education units. The CxA exam is a 4-hour, closed-book exam that tests approved candidates on their knowledge of the commissioning process, as well as a general understanding of building systems and how commissioning fits in with the rest of the construction process.
The event is being conducted in conjunction with the CxAlloy Users Group Conference, which takes place Nov. 12-14, in the same venue, Solis Two Porsche Drive.
The CxA program achieved ANSI accreditation in 2017, and the credential is also a recognized certification by the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines program, ensuring that the CxA is considered an approved commissioning credential for all federally funded projects.
The CxA certification is a credential for independent commissioning providers. It demonstrates you are an experienced commissioning provider with a complete understanding of the commissioning process and possess the organizational, documentation, communication, and team-building skills that are necessary to lead and coordinate a commissioning team and to ensure that the intent of the building owner is achieved.
ACG is a non-profit association dedicated to the advancement of independent third-party building commissioning.
