The AABC Commissioning Group (ACG) will be conducting a newly expanded, two-day workshop and exam for its Commissioning Authority (CxA) Certification at the AHR Expo. This year’s expo will be held January 22-24 in Chicago.

According to ACG, this workshop covers all aspects of commissioning ranging from project management to functional testing and entails many group breakout activities to develop and discuss samples of key commissioning deliverables. The CxA exam is a four-hour, closed-book exam that tests 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. Registration can be found here.

Laster this year, ACG will hold its fifth annual CxEnergy Conference & Expo. The expo, April 23-26 in Las Vegas, will aim to provide more topical, in-depth educational presentations for commissioning, TAB, and energy management professionals. Attendees will earn AIA and other industry certification continuing education credits for presentations that include case studies and topics in building envelope/enclosure commissioning, technology and innovation, energy management, commissioning specialty systems, policy and financial issues, lighting, water management, data centers, microgrids, energy storage, and more.
