The BACnet Institute




A one-stop, 360-degree BACnet Experience


The BACnet Institute was developed by BACnet International, with the support of its members and industry leaders. It is an online center for BACnet educational resources and provides an easy path to BACnet information and learning for everyone involved with BACnet systems, as well as forums to share knowledge.


Designed around BACnet community needs revealed in an extensive 2014 member survey, The BACnet Institute is designed to encompasses on-demand, self-paced courses alongside an organized repository of white papers, presentations and recorded webinars, as well as communities. It operates under the administration of BACnet International in collaboration with other BACnet industry groups.




The Courses section houses on-demand, self-paced courses. The goal of this section is to provide interactive learning experiences to individuals at all levels.


The first course, BACnet Basics, has been released. It contains six lessons and is geared toward individuals unfamiliar with BACnet, or those who need a refresher. More courses are under development and will be released throughout the year. 


As a first time user, you will need to create an account. Visit The BACnet Institute and click on the "Sign Up Now" link.




As a repository of articles, white papers, presentations and recorded webinars, the Resources section centralizes a wealth of expert knowledge, which is categorized by application, focus and user level for easy accessibility.


The BACnet Institute will curate existing information and resources, as well as commission the development of new resources such as video presentations, white papers and webinars.



Community Forums:

This section contains two communities: the Technical Forum and Ask the Expert. The main purpose of these communities is to encourage knowledge sharing across differing expertise and perspectives. These communities are not intended for commercial purposes.


The Technical Forum provides an opportunity for BACnet system developers to openly discuss current BACnet-related topics. This community allows users to submit new discussions, reply to discussions, as well as receive updates of peer posts through email subscriptions. Past discussions submitted through the Cornell University BACnet-L email list server have also been captured in this community providing more visibility and added functionality to these discussions.


Ask the Expert provides an opportunity for BACnet system users to submit BACnet-related questions to be answered by experts in the BACnet industry. Once a question is submitted a panel of experts will review the question and collectively determine the most accurate answer. The final answer is then posted with the question in that community.
