NEBB retro-commissioning seminar, exam
The NEBB Technical Retro-Commissioning Seminar and Exam is being held July 17-20, 2013, in Portland, Ore.
The Retro-Commissioning Technical Seminar is exclusively designed for an individual interested in becoming a National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) Retro-Commissioning Certified Professional. All passing grades will count toward NEBB Retro-Commissioning Certification.
This seminar will give each participant important input into the final NEBB Retro-Commissioning Procedural Standard that will be issued later in the year. As with its other programs, NEBB has set stringent requirements for NEBB Retro-Commissioning Certification. A key requirement for Retro-Commissioning certification is to:
- Pass the NEBB Retro-Commissioning Fundamental exam
- Pass the Retro-Commissioning Seminar exam
All attendees must also own a copy of the NEBB Design Phase Commissioning Manual prior to the seminar.
The seminar will be held at Portland, Ore., in the Congress Center Mt. Rooms on the 18th floor July 17-20, 2013.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
