Cx certification now available

ASHRAE launches commissioning certification program.

03/25/2009


Just as the commissioning process helps buildings and their systems operate optimally, ASHRAE’s newest certification recognizes those with optimal knowledge of the entire building commissioning process. The program is ideal for individuals given a commissioning role who may not have a building HVAC&R background.

ASHRAE’s Commissioning Process Management Professional launches in June at the Society’s 2009 Annual Conference in Louisville, Ky.

Developed with input from APPA, BCA, IESNA, NEBB, SMACNA, TABB, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the program is the fourth in ASHRAE’s suite of certification offerings. The others focus on healthcare design, high-performance building design, and O&M.

Individuals must meet certain eligibility qualifications to take the exam. Visit the ASHRAE site for more information, an exam content outline, and available resources for exam preparation. The fee for the exam is $207.50 before June 5 ($147 for ASHRAE members).
