So, remember to check the WBDG system on Thursdays at 12:00pm to earn all of your Energy Exchange CEUs by October 30th!
Each year the Energy Exchange offers an innovative schedule of training tracks and panel sessions led by experts in their respective fields. Thought leaders from the federal, private, education, and state and local government sectors convene to accelerate the adoption of energy/water efficiency, integrated resilience, emerging and secure technologies, and replicable renewable energy solutions. Energy Exchange sessions are accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

Obtain Continuing Education Units
Each training session at the Energy Exchange represents a distinct learning event with clear learning outcomes. Session attendees are required to pass a session assessment and complete a brief session survey in order to obtain credit. Attendees are eligible for 0.2 CEUs for sessions lasting 1.5 hours.
Earn CEU Credit
In qualifying sessions, attendees can earn up to 0.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per session by completing the following steps.
- Register for free or log in to your existing account with the NIBS Whole Building Design Guide and visit: www.wbdg.org/energy-exchange
- Stay for the entirety of the session.
- Pass a session quiz (with a minimum score of 80%).
Earn FBPTA Credit
The Federal Buildings Personnel Training Act (FBPTA) of 2010 requires all federal personnel providing building operations and maintenance services to demonstrate competencies necessary to effectively operate government facilities. When you see a session with a GSA FBPTA symbol, you’ll know that:
- The session has been aligned with at least one FBPTA performance.
- The session will be automatically uploaded to the FBPTA compliance reporting tool for all attendees who are registered with an account for the compliance reporting tool (AccelerateFM). If you don’t have an account in AccelerateFM, you can create one within 30 days of the Energy Exchange, the session(s) will be uploaded for you. Learn more about FBPTA at http://www.fmi.gov/ or https://acceleratefm.us/.
