Why Become a CCF?

The Certified Commissioning Firm (CCF) demonstrates the highest standards for professional commissioning firms. Organizations that hold the CCF designation stand out among competitors as experts – with the determination and ability to provide the premier services to clients, and the commitment to the advancement of the practice of commissioning. The CCF shows that you:

  • Can prove your industry leadership
  • Stand out among your competitors
  • Provide the premier services to your clients

How to Apply

Download the CCF Application and complete, including payment information

Therefore, even if you report the same buildings used in a previous CCP application, please complete the CCF project sections in their entirety.

What a certified person have to say

“I recently responded to 9 Request For Proposals for Commissioning Providers for 6 new schools and 3 major renovations and additions to existing schools. In each of the RFPs, the Certified Commissioning Professional (CCP) designation was specifically mentioned as a requirement or considered bonus points on the evaluation. Extra points were also provided for being a Certified Commissioning Firm. Of the nine RFPs we responded to, we were awarded all 9 projects. Two required online interviews where I was able to further highlight the benefits of having the CCP and CCF certification from an organization that focuses solely on the Commissioning Industry. From now until the end 2024, our company has projects to keep us busy”
