Call for Participants: Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines Job Task Analyses

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is supporting the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) Commercial Workforce Credentialing Council (CWCC) as the industry coordination body 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.

The NIBS CWCC requests your assistance in identifying a broad range of current industry practitioners to participate in job-task analysis studies 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 catalog the activities and tasks a worker performs in a given job, and (2) identify the knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) which define the minimum requirements for a person to successfully perform those tasks. These five job-task analyses will form the foundation for the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines.

Participation Details
•    Apply or Nominate: Navigate directly to the sign-up page at NIBS.rapidinsites.com to submit your industry credentials or nominate a colleague
•    Application deadline: Tuesday, December 4, 2013
•    Questions: Address questions to Deke Smith, Program Director, Commercial Workforce
Credentialing Council, National Institute of Building Sciences (dsmith@nibs.org)

This is an opportunity for you or other practitioners in your organization or industry network to contribute to a project of national scope and significance that will support a skilled and qualified commercial buildings workforce for decades to come. More information on the Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines is available on the DOE project website.
