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, a set of voluntary national guidelines to improve the quality and consistency of commercial building workforce training and certification programs.

As the industry coordination body, the CWCC, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is looking for a broad range of current industry practitioners to participate in a job-task analysis study for the following five energy-related job categories:

  • Building Energy Auditor
  • Building Commissioning Professional
  • Building Operations Professional
  • Energy Manager
  • Facility Manager (for Government Facilities)

The job-task analyses will (1) identify and catalogue the activities and tasks a worker performs in a given job, and (2) 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.

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 Tuesday, December 4, 2013.
