The International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants, an academy of specialized building enclosure project designers, announced its first 15 applicants for CBECxP certification passed the exam and are now officially accredited in building enclosure commissioning.
Holding a CBECxP accreditation represents that you are highly trained in properly installing materials, components, assemblies, and systems to meet the objectives and requirements of the owner defined in the contract documents.
