California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program

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 1, 2014. These proposed 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 by completing the following:

  1. Meeting the required state and program requirements which can be found in the CALCTP-AT Handbook posted on the Acceptance Technician page of the CALCTP website.
  2. Submitting a completed CALCTP-AT Technician application with supporting documents to info@calctp.org.
  3. Pay the appropriate application and records maintenance fee upon application approval.
  4. Successfully complete CALCTP-AT Technician Certification course.
