The SAABE Certified Building Engineer program has been the Mile Stone for both past and future members since the San Antonio Association of Building Engineers came into existence in the mid 1980’s.  Over the years the program has grown and expanded to keep up with trends and advancements of the industry as well as keeping up with new and changing city and governmental codes and requirements.

Through these times the level of Designations has broadened to include those just getting into our trade, ones that have passed milestones of tenure as well as advancements through Formal training offered by BOMA, BOMI, both Public and private schools and other accredited technical institutions. Currently any formal training obtained through or by manufactures of equipment they produce and distribute for commercial use also counts to meet each Designation level and their specific requirements.



  (Example 1996) 

To date SAABE has awarded many and various levels of Certifications to our Members and are currently evaluating recent applications for the “In-Training”, “Apprentice”, “Journeymen” and “Master” levels.
