AABC Commissioning Group, Energy Management Association & Society of American Military Engineers Form Alliance

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The AABC Commissioning Group and the Energy Management Association have formed a strategic alliance with the Society of American Military Engineers to facilitate collaboration, education and provide professional development for SAME members involved in engineering and construction services.

Most notably, the alliance will provide support to transitioning military officers and personnel through ACG’s Certified Commissioning Authority and Energy Management Professional certification programs. The CxA certification is accredited by the American National Standards Institute and recognized by the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines program, ensuring it is considered an approved commissioning credential for federally funded projects. EMA is applying for the same designations and is expected to attain them within 60-90 days.

The alliance will be on full display at the upcoming CxEnergy, the premier event in commissioning and energy management, where SAME members will be able to take advantage of professional development and networking opportunities, discounted registration and 20 percent discount on EMP training and certification. In addition, they will earn AIA continuing education credits that apply to a wide variety of other industry certifications. The CxEnergy Technical Program includes presentations that include case studies and topics such as building envelope/enclosure commissioning, technology & innovation, energy management, commissioning specialty systems, policy & financial issues, lighting, water management, data centers, microgrids and energy storage.

CxEnergy is being held April 23-26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more info, visit: http://www.cxenergy.com/.
