The Building Operator Certification (BOC®) program is eight modules rolled out over a nine-day skills based training and certification program which affords facility personnel improved job skills and knowledge to transform workplaces into more comfortable, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly environments.
Each course consists of highly interactive and hands-on classroom training facilitated by very knowledgeable and experienced building professionals. Project assignments are to be completed at the participant’s facility, and an in-class exam is administered at the end of each day of training.
Building operators are responsible for day-to-day maintenance and operation of large buildings with complex heating, mechanical and electrical systems, which offer excellent opportunity for significant energy savings.
