The CxA program recognizes independent building commissioning professionals who demonstrate the technical, management, and communications skills required for competent performance. The scope of the CxA program is aligned with the certification scheme for commissioning professionals developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings program, which was evaluated and and then adopted by the ACG Certification Council.


ACG’s CxA certification is available to industry professionals who lead, plan, coordinate and manage commissioning teams to implement commissioning processes in new and existing buildings. CxA certificants manage commissioning projects, prepare commissioning documentation, conduct commissioning activities, coordinate operator training activities, complete warranty phase activities, conduct existing building commissioning, conduct on-going commissioning, and are independent and work on behalf of building owners.
