ASHRAE announces Cx certification

04/01/2009


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.

ASHRAE’s Commissioning Process Management Professional launches in June at the Society’s 2009 Annual Conference in Louisville, Ky. The program helps building owners, developers, operators, and others recognize individuals capable of assuring that building systems and equipment are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to their operational needs.

The program recognizes that people who manage the commissioning process need to have people- and project-management skills. The people must also have a level of knowledge and understanding of building design, construction, operations, and maintenance as they relate to the total building commissioning process.

Developed with input from APPA , Building Commissioning Association , Illuminating Engineering Society of North America , National Environmental Balancing Bureau , Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association , Testing Adjusting and Balancing Bureau , 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).
