ASHRAE's Operations and Performance Management Certification

Program (OPMP) has joined ASHRAE's two other existing certification offerings

available at testing centers around the world.

The web-based exam is offered at testing centers in more

than 200 locations in almost 20 countries. Besides the U.S. and Canada,

the exam is now offered in countries such as Australia,

China, Egypt, Guam, India, Japan,

Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon,

Philippines, Puerto Rico, Qatar,

Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South

Africa, South Korea,

Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

Applicants first apply for the exam through ASHRAE, and once they meet the

certification qualifications, they register for the exam at a testing center.

"ASHRAE's OPMP certification helps professionals attest

that they are well prepared to manage and maintain buildings to fully achieve

reliability and their potential energy savings," said Richard Rooley,

chair of the committee who developed the exam. "These ASHRAE certified

professionals will keep your building's design from fading from green to grey,

ensuring the full potential of the energy conserving systems they manage."

Other ASHRAE certifications currently available at testing

centers are Healthcare Facility Design Professional and High-Performance

Building Design Professional Certification. 

ASHRAE's Commissioning Process Management Professional launches in June

at the Society's 2009 Annual Conference in Louisville, Ky.,

and will be available at testing centers by the end of August.
