The Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines address commercial building workforce training and certification programs aimed at increasing the overall level of competency for four key energy-related jobs: building energy auditor, building commissioning professional, energy manager and building operations professional. The BBWG program is the component of the Better Buildings Initiative – a broad, multistrategy initiative to make commercial and industrial buildings 20% more energy efficient over the next 10 years – aimed at raising the bar for the workforce needed to operate high-performance buildings that can deliver the targeted energy savings.
