New for 2016: LonMark Online Refresher
LonMark International is proud to announce the launch of 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 ability to study and prepare
for the LonMark Certified Professional (LCP) test in the comfort of
their office or home. There is no longer a need to travel to a testing
center making the program substantially more affordable and accessible.
The LCP program is a recognized proficiency
program in the industry for LonWorks designers,
engineers and installers and is required
by many project specifications. As LonMark
broadens its reach globally, it was key
to also make the program more flexible
and accessible. Each student completing
the class is eligible to receive a course
certificate and letter of completion for
use in your training portfolio.
The training program consists of 11 course
modules that align to the LonWorks Installation
Handbook Version 3. Each module contains
a video where students will review key
proficiency topics required by the LCP
program. It is recommended students have
some familiarity with LonWorks and have
read the LonWorks Installation Handbook.
After each video module, students are encouraged
to review the associated chapter in the
book and then proceed to the next module.
Additional reading assignments accompany
several of the modules. Being self-paced
allows one to take as long as needed to
review the modules, even repeat modules,
pause and skip backward or forward using
the built in video controls. On average
an estimated time for the preparation and
to complete the 11 modules is approximately
four to five hours. However those familiar
with the concepts may finish in under
The refresher course — for those
already fluent in the world of LONWORKS
networks — covers the following topics
in the context of the exam:
- LonWorks history and terminology
- Transport media
- Physical network structuring
- Logical network structuring
- Network configuration
- Tools for network management
- LonWorks and IP
- User interfaces
LonMark International offers no guarantee
that by undertaking the refresher course,
the individuals will pass the LonMark Professional
Certification test. The refresher course
is designed purely to provide the individuals
with additional training to support and
re-enforce the knowledge they should already
have before taking the exam.
Upon completion of the training class,
students are prepared for the LCP test.
The new testing platform is also online
and no longer requires an onsite proctor.
The LCP test has a two- hour limit and
consists of 120 questions covering the
key proficiency topics required by LonMark
International. Upon completion of the test,
students are immediately notified of their
score. If a passing score is achieved,
students are sent their LCP Credential
by email within seven business days and
their information is added to the LonMark
Website within 14 business days.
Currently the training is availble in
English and the test is available in English,
Spanish and German. Other languages will
be added throughout the year. Training
partners in Germany and Spanish speaking
countries are available to teach classroom
based courses in preperation for the LCP
test. We anticipate having the online refresher
class available in German and Spanish soon.
LonMark is also working on a new “Introduction
to LonWorks,” online class that will precede
the refresher class for those unfamiliar
with LonWorks. This new class along with
others, will be added to the LonMark course
