ATLANTA – ASHRAE’s Operations and Performance Management (OPMP) Certification program has joined the Society’s two other existing certification offerings available at testing centers around the world.

ASHRAE member Jim Newman took the exam when it was first offered at ASHRAE’s 2009 Winter Conference.

“I teach classes to facility engineers on proper operating and maintenance techniques,” said Newman, ASHRAE certified OPMP, Newman Consulting Group, Bloomfield Hills, Mich. “This exam covered all the aspects of operations and maintenance that an engineer would need to know to properly perform not only O&M in a building, but also know what to do to be more effective. Receiving the OPMP designation shows that a person is truly proficient in his/her craft.”

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.
