Tuesday, April 25, 2017 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. $650 (includes application fee, workshop & exam) Note: Individuals who are interested in CxA certification must submit a completed CxA Application in advance of the test date to get approved to take the CxA exam.
CxA certification is open to independent industry professionals who meet all education and experience prerequisites and implement commissioning processes in new and existing buildings.
The CxA exam is a four-hour, closed-book exam consisting of 130 multiple-choice questions. The exam tests candidates on elements of the commissioning process, as well as general understanding of building systems and how commissioning fits in with the construction process. ACG recommends that all candidates thoroughly study the ACG Commissioning Guideline to prepare for the exam. Other reference materials are also available. Individuals who are attending CxEnergy may also want to register to attend the Workshop as final preparation for the exam.
Download the CxA Candidate Handbook for comprehensive information regarding the CxA certification program, including how to apply for certification and prepare to take the new examination.
Energy Management Professional (EMP) Seminar & Exam
Monday, April 24 – Tuesday, April 25, 2017 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. $1,150 (includes application fee, seminar & exam) Note: all required documentation must be submitted with the application in order to qualify for certification.
The Energy Management Process Seminar is designed to help candidates understand the energy management process and how it can be applied and serves as the final preparation for the Energy Management Professional (EMP) exam.
This program is based on the process described in the Energy Management Guideline. The detailed, phased process uses a data-driven approach and is designed to achieve maximum energy efficiency while ensuring optimal building performance. The Energy Management Professional (EMP) designation raises the bar for energy-related certifications. The EMP is a “master’s degree” for individuals who provide independent energy services and have not only a deep understanding of energy concepts, but also an intimate, hands-on understanding of how building systems operate.
After taking into account the current COVID-19 situation, continued hotel restrictions due to the virus, current registration numbers and, most importantly, feedback from our members and other potential attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors on their willingness to attend in-person, the ACG Board of Directors has made the decision to hold CxEnergy 2021 as a fully virtual event.
The Board did not make this decision lightly, holding biweekly discussions since November on the status of the conference. In the end, they concluded that because of the continuing uncertainty, pivoting now to a virtual event was the best decision. This will allow the event to take place during the month of April, while bringing the largest number of educational sessions to the greatest number of people.
Registration, including free access for members of ACG, EMA and ACG, will open soon. To see the complete virtual program, click here. Highlights of this year’s format include:
– Two live virtual presentations each week during the month of April (Tuesdays & Thursdays).
– A short virtual business session for ACG and EMA association updates.
– 8 additional prerecorded technical sessions available to members and registered attendees, for a total of 16 hours of educational offerings.
– A separate, dedicated “Technology Day,” designed to allow you to attend short, rapid-fire sessions with CxEnergy exhibitors over a period of a few hours, to keep up with their latest offerings in support of your commissioning, energy management, and testing businesses, as well as the opportunity to win a number of sponsored prizes.
More information will be forthcoming soon. Please email [email protected] with any questions. We hope that you are all staying safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you virtually again this year and then in person again, finally, in Orlando in 2022!
