ASHRAE Awards David R. Scherer, P.E. Certification for Commissioning Process Management Professional
ANCHORAGE – David R. Scherer, P.E. of NORTECH Inc. Environment, Energy, Health & Safety Consultants has earned a Commissioning Process Management Professional certification from ASHRAE.
ASHRAE’s certification program helps building owners and managers identify individuals who can design, install, test and maintain building systems and equipment to meet operational needs. The program targets individuals who manage the commissioning process, not commissioning providers.
“An ASHRAE certification benefits building owners, employers and individuals,” ASHRAE President Tom Watson said. “Firms who employ ASHRAE-certified engineers are better able to promote their services, and individuals who are certified approach their design responsibilities with greater confidence. ASHRAE certification helps professionals demonstrate that they have mastered a certain body of knowledge and can provide outstanding services in their area of expertise.”
The computer-based exam is offered at testing facilities across the United States and in 19 other nations. Persons interested in earning the certification must meet certain eligibility requirements and submit a completed application. A list of recommended resources from ASHRAE and other sources is available. For more information, visit www.ashrae.org/certification.
