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. You and your company can do a lot to ensure that your buildings operate as energy-efficiently as possible: increase tenant comfort; save money; and reduce your environmental footprint.
NEW CERTIFICATION EXAM
Starting in 2018, the BOC program will be aligned with ISO 17024, an international standard for organizations that certify personnel. This change includes the addition of a comprehensive exam. The exam takes place after the course is completed. Upon successfully passing the exam, candidates earn the CBO (Certified Building Operator) certification.
The Certification Exam is a three-hour computer-based test addressing topics covered in the course training. The exam is comprised of 100 multiple choice questions.
Candidates who complete a public BOC program must schedule their certification exam with NEEC. There are several testing locations across Canada with flexible dates and times. Candidates register and pay the USD 285 exam fee on NEEC’s Certifior website.
