Certified Chief Engineer (CCE) Training: NAHLE has completed a second study-guide, tutorial, practice exams and online exams for limited service property engineers and the No. 2 at resorts and full service properties. This course is a little less demanding, but both books include information related to the planning and organizing of tasks, overviews of hotel engineering systems, and the financial and ethical skills required to operate effectively within a hotel organization. The limited service property book spends less time on management principles and has chapters that focus on low-rise wood frame building construction with an additional discussion of PTAC units with a detailed look at moisture infiltration. Both of NAHLE’s professional curriculums are intended to be comprehensive and cover all hotel building engineering subjects including: HVAC, plumbing, electrical, lighting, landscaping, swimming pools and vertical transport to name a few.
