LONMARK International announced that it is developing a new program to test and certify industry professionals on LONMARK® Open Systems. The new program will target individuals that install, integrate and maintain systems utilizing LONMARK certified products.

This program will build on a successful program the LONMARK Association implemented nearly a decade ago to test and certify products for conformance. The association is developing a multi-phase program, whereby individuals will be able to become certified at various technical levels based on proficiency testing. The first level of certification will determine basic LONMARK technology proficiency. Subsequent tests will support mid and advanced levels of certification for competency involving LONMARK Open Systems.

The program is currently in the development stage and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2006. Visit link below for more information.
