To strengthen and grow the overall influence of NCI commercial TAB certifications, changes were made to NBC certification beginning December 1, 2021, through the spring of 2024. NBC recertification will be available for up to two years for those who meet all qualifications before April 30, 2022.
All NBC certifications will sunset by April 30, 2024. The NBC certification is being replaced by NCI's Advanced Air and Hydronic Balancing Certification. Those successfully completing the recertification requirements will earn the designation NCI Air and Hydronic Balancing Professional. This is NCI's highest TAB certification.
All NBC certifications will sunset over the next two years
