Each sectional test is comprised of numerous multiple-choice test questions drawn from the Section’s individual chapters and the addition of our Appendix. A minimum passing score of 70% per exam is necessary to successfully complete the program. Applicants may take each Sectional exam until they successfully reach a passing score. All exams are open-book, meaning that candidates may refer to personal notes or books during their exam. Candidates have one hour to complete an exam.

Upon successful completion of the three (3) required exams, candidates may download their certificate of completion as a pdf file. Certificates are found under the Litmos drop-down menu Achievements. All certificates are designed to print on most standard color printers using 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper. Your certificate designates the candidate has successfully completed the core competency requirements to become a Certified Chief Engineer.

May you and your family remain safe and healthy.

Certified Chief Engineer (CCE) Training: Consists of an online study-guide, tutorial, practice exams and exams for limited service hotel properties and low-rise lodging facility engineers and No. 2 or promotion tracked engineers for resorts and full service properties. This course is a little less demanding than our CDOE, but both curriculums include information related to the planning and organizing of tasks, overviews of hotel building systems, and the building facade and grounds. It also provides financial and ethical skills required to operate effectively within a hotel organization. The limited service property study guide curriculum spends less time on management and OSHA principles and requirements. Its chapters focus on low-rise wood-frame building construction. The CCE study guide provides an additional discussion of PTAC units with a detailed look at moisture infiltration and thru-wall penetrations not found in our CDOE program. Both of NAHLE’s professional curriculums are intended to be comprehensive and cover most all hotel building and lodging facility engineering subjects including: HVAC, plumbing, electrical, lighting, landscaping, swimming pools and vertical transport, among others.
