As end users continue to require their engineering staff to become trained and certified, thus paving the way for an even higher level of qualified industry professionals, LONMARK 's Professional Certification Testing Program continues to gain strength, and since the testing program was launched at the AHR show in Dallas in January 2007, close to 135 individuals have taken the test.
