ASHRAE has announced that its Commissioning Process Management Professional certification program will launch in June at the society's annual conference in Louisville, Ky.

The program is intended to help 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.

"As the standard setter for sustainable building performance, ASHRAE's  certification program recognizes that people who manage the commissioning process need to have people- and project-management skills in addition to a level of understanding of building design, construction, operations and maintenance," Bill Harrison, ASHRAE president, said. "This is what distinguishes the commissioning program from other HVAC commissioning certifications."
                    
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 operation and maintenance.

Individuals must meet certain eligibility qualifications to take the exam. For more information, an exam content outline and available resources for exam preparation, please visit www.ashrae.org/certification. The fee for the exam is $207.50 before June 5. For ASHRAE members, the fee is reduced to $147.
