Already have your LEED AP designation? Now there’s another credential for building systems engineers to acquire, with the launch of the ASHRAE Building Energy Assessment Professional (BEAP) Certification. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers has launched the certification as a complement to its Building Energy Quotient program and its Building Energy Modeling Professional certification.
The BEAP certification certifies individuals’ ability to audit and analyze residential, commercial and industrial buildings for energy efficiency and to assist with implementing recommendations. It covers determining a project’s scope, collecting data, analyzing building performance, interpreting results, evaluating alternatives, submitting recommendations for energy conservation measures and assisting with the implementation of those recommendations.
The program launches at ASHRAE’s Winter Conference on February 2, 2011, with a pencil and paper examination.
