2018 Training Opportunities: 

Building Operator Certification® (BOC) Training - See below for dates and locations
No matter where your building is located or what it is used for, there’s one powerful tool that will make it run more efficiently: operator education.

Building systems are complex and interdependent. To get the most out of them, operators must be able to see the big picture. The Building Operator Certification® (BOC) program teaches facilities personnel to understand these systems and bring them collectively to peak efficiency.

Independent research shows that BOC credential-holders consistently save money and energy in their facilities – up to $20,000 a year – thanks to energy conservation projects, air quality improvements and other initiatives. For specific examples, take a look at case studies featuring BOC graduates.  To learn more about the BOC program visit:
