"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.
