(Washington, D.C., July 3, 2019)—The AABC Commissioning Group (ACG) will conduct an educational workshop on September 23, 2019 in Dallas, TX, followed by an administration of the exam for the Certified Commissioning Authority (CxA) credential for approved candidates.
The CxA event is being held in conjunction with the Critical Facilities Summit in Dallas, of which ACG is a Supporting Organization. The Summit is geared toward senior-level professionals responsible for the design, construction, management and operations of mission critical facilities. It takes place September 24-26.
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 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 the premier credential for independent commissioning providers. It
demonstrates you are an experienced commissioning provider with a complete understanding
of the commissioning process and with the ability to ensure that the intent of the building owner is achieved.
