The Building Operator Certification (BOC®) program is an eight-module, nine-day competency - based training and certification program, offering facilities personnel the improved job skills and knowledge to transform workplaces to be more comfortable, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. The program consists of eight courses delivered in a total of nine days of training.
Each course consists of highly interactive and hands-on classroom training facilitated by very knowledgeable and experienced building professionals, project assignments to be completed at the participant’s facility, and an in-class exam administered at the end of each day of training.
Building operators are responsible for the day-to-day maintenance and operation of large buildings with complex heating, mechanical and electrical systems – and these offer many opportunities for big energy savings. You and your company can do a lot to make sure that your buildings are operated in the most energy-efficient way possible – increasing tenant comfort, saving money and reducing your environmental footprint.
