Your CA Membership Benefits in Action - Mechanical Acceptance Testing
PHCC of CA’s membership was represented at the CA Energy Commission’s recent workshop on Mechanical Acceptance Testing.


  1. sent workshop materials to affected contractor members in advance of the workshop,
  2. provided representation and input at the CEC workshop, and
  3. is connecting member contractors to certification resources

Why does this matter? Self-certification keeps projects on schedule and avoid potential delays or challenges created by third-party acceptance testing. The time frame for contractors to self-certify their company’s work is closing and self-certification will only be allowed IF members have an employee/s certified as acceptance testing technician.

PHCC is dedicated to the promotion, advancement, education and training of the industry, for the protection of our environment and the health, safety and comfort of society.
