NIBS seeks help with Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines

The National Institute of Building Sciences Commercial Workforce Credentialing Council (CWCC) is seeking qualified practitioners to assist in the development of job task analyses for the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines. The guidelines are a set of voluntary national guidelines with the goal of improving the quality and consistency of commercial building workforce training and certification programs.

CWCC says it is looking for a broad range of current industry practitioners to participate in a job-task analysis study for five energy-related job categories: building energy auditor, building commissioning professional, building operations professional, energy manager, and facility manager (for government facilities).

The job-task analyses will aim to identify and catalogue the activities and tasks a worker performs in a given job, and identify the knowledge, skills, and abilities that define the minimum requirements for a person to adequately perform those tasks on the job. These five job-task analyses will form the foundation of the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines.

According to the institute, this is an opportunity for practitioners, organizations, and industry networks to contribute to a project of national scope and significance that will support a skilled and qualified commercial buildings workforce for decades to come. Applications and nominations are due Dec. 4, 2013.

Go here to learn more about the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines. Or apply now to submit industry credentials or nominate a colleague.
