Mr. Raphael Gomez, Commissioning Manager at MAP CLIM, who attended AEE's CBCP® training, organized by BEELAS Group last year in Paris (France), provided good feedback on the high quality of this program and the added value of the international certification to the French HVAC Magazine (CVC)-June edition 2019.
He said, in addition to providing preparation for AEE’s Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP®) certification program, this five-day course is designed to meet the training needs of those who need to know the technical details of the commissioning process. This comprehensive course goes into considerable technical detail on the fundamental principles of both new building commissioning and existing building commissioning (also called Re-Commissioning or Retro-Commissioning).
He underlined the definition of Commissioning as a process of ensuring that building systems are designed, installed, functionally tested, and capable of being operated and maintained according to the owner’s operational needs. He highlighted also the fact that commissioning can restore existing buildings to high productivity through renovation, upgrade and tune-up of existing systems. This program examines all aspects of building commissioning. Dozens of case studies from successfully completed projects were presented, including hospitals, data centers, airports, university campuses, school districts, commercial buildings, district heating and cooling, and research facilities taken from the instructors’ more than 20 years of combined experience in commissioning. Participants were encouraged to produce real-world examples from their own personal experience to share with the class.
He added, the Certified Building Commissioning Professional (CBCP®) credential has become widely accepted and used as a measure of professional accomplishment within the commissioning and retro-commissioning field.
