Nonresidential Acceptance Testing Technician Training dates: January 22, 23, 24, 2018 from 8:30am-5:30pm The California Energy Commission adopted changes to the Building Energy Efficiency Standards contained in the California Code of Regulations, Title 24, Part 6 (also known as the California Energy Code) and associated administrative regulations in Part 1. The amended standards, called the "Nonresidential Acceptance Testing Certification," went into effect on July 01, 2014. These proposed regulations create independent third party certification and training procedures to ensure Field Test Technicians and their employers acquire minimal level of training and skill to verify nonresidential lighting controls and mechanical systems comply with existing Energy Efficiency Building Standards. This training provides the requirements needed to become a Non-Residential CALCTP-AT Technician (field test certifier) for advanced lighting control systems.
