ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) announced that its Operations and Performance Management (OPMP) Certification program has joined its 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. In addition to the United States 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 examination through ASHRAE, and if they meet the certification qualifications, register for the examination 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.
