LonMark International has launched a new LonMark Certification Training and Testing suite that now provides the industry with a more accessible and global program. The program is fully online and self-paced, which offers students the new courses in building automation and the ability to study and prepare for the LonMark Certified Professional (LCP) test in the comfort of their office or home. Additional courses in LonWorks, Smart Cities, SmartGrid and others are in development. There is no longer a need to travel to a testing center making the program substantially more affordable and accessible.

The primary goal of the program is to create a proficiency standard helping to assure end users that they receive a solution that fits their exact installation and performance requirements.

The building automation and refresher classes are currently available in English and the LonMark Certified Professional test is available in English, German, and Spanish with Japanese in development.

Over the summer months in Arizona, electric consumption is especially high and sales are often down. No matter the season, however, restaurants use about 5 to 7 times more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings (according to EnergyStar.com), with family dining restaurants potentially using up to 10 times more energy. In fact, energy use often ranks fourth among expenses for restaurants and convenience stores, with lighting and refrigeration taking up much of the rest.
