From Focus on Energy:

Building Operator Certification (BOC©) is a hands-on training and certification program offering building operators, managers, and consultants an in-depth look at the best ways to manage a facility, from the latest technologies to tips, techniques, and best practices.

Attendees earn certification by attending a series of training sessions and completing project assignments at their facilities. BOC certification enables recipients to distinguish themselves to employers through improved job skills and a commitment to their profession.

BOC participants save an average of $12,000 per facility, per year, and more than 90 percent of participants and their supervisors say that BOC training has improved comfort, saved energy, or saved money in their facilities!

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Increase the safety, comfort, and air quality of their facilities
  • Reduce energy costs and unscheduled maintenance
  • Improve customer service to building occupants
  • Comply with environmental regulations in a timely manner

Industries which benefit from Building Operator Certification include the hospitality industry, property management, retail and more.  Classes meet in Brookfield over 8 days from September 15- December 15.  To learn more, see the Focus on Energy certification page here.
