LonMark International Plans for Continued Growth in Latin America with new Affiliate Organization
LonMark Cono Sur to Support New Members, Technology Adoption and Certified Professionals in Chile, Argentina Uruguay, Paraguay, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and Bolivia
SAN JOSE, CALIF., August 12, 2014-
LonMark, a non-profit association for the certification, education and
promotion of interoperability standards for control networking, today
announced the formation of a new affiliate organization, LonMark Cono
Sur, to support LonMark members and certified professionals in South
America, including Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Peru, Brazil,
Colombia, Venezuela and Bolivia.
To-date, more than 700 people have passed the LonMark Certified Profession (LCP) exam, with 25 percent coming from Spanish-speaking countries. The LCP program establishes a proficiency standard to assure end-users that they have access to a resource pool of professionals with industry knowledge and experience. More and more end-users, project developers, specifiers, and planners are requiring LonMark Certified Professionals for their projects because they are confident in their fundamental knowledge of LonWorks® technology and LonMark Open Systems. The popular LonWorks Installation Handbook, which is used by exam candidates to prepare for the LCP exam, is being translated into Spanish by LonMark Spain, a LonMark affiliate organization.
LonMark Cono Sur’s mission will be defining the courses and documentation required for professionals to incorporate the ISO/IEC 14908 standard in facilities across the region,” said Hernán Fagnilli, president, LonMark Cono Sur. “We are confident this affiliate will be a great resource for Latin American members and their customers who support the ISO/IEC 14908 standard.”
