The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will offer a new exam, starting in June, for Commissioning Process Management Professionals. Intended to help building owners and others find qualified people to lead the commissioning process, the certification considers people- and project-management skills as well as knowledge of mechanical systems. To be eligible for the exam, candidates must have been involved with commissioning at least three projects and have a combination of relevant education and work experience.

The first exam will be offered in June 2009 at the ASHRAE annual conference, in Louisville, Kentucky. Beginning in August, the test will be available at testing centers worldwide. ASHRAE developed the program with help from professional and industry groups and the University of Wisconsin–Madison. More information, including a candidate’s guidebook, is available at www.ashrae.org.
