A Guide to Commissioning and Auditing Credentials

Custom-built support for LEEDuser members

LEEDuser tip sheets, written by our team of LEED experts, fill gaps in knowledge we’ve observed between the LEED Reference Guide, LEED Online, and LEED Interpretations. We update them regularly so that our members get the most relevant guidance for current issues on their projects.

Whether you’re looking to hire someone to conduct auditing or commissioning, or you want to differentiate yourself and your firm from the competition, it’s important to understand the range of professional certifications available and what those credentials signify.

This Tip Sheet summarizes common credentials for auditing and commissioning professionals. Is one better than another? Maybe, but it depends on what you’re looking for. As an example, only Professional Engineers may sign, seal, and submit drawings to a public authority for approval, but they might not have experience facilitating the commissioning process in an existing building.
