BOC is offering the Building Operator Certification (BOC) training series for the Northeast. Certification exemplifies building operator excellence. This program is a competency-based training and verification program for building operators, aiming to improve the energy efficiency of commercial and industrial buildings. Building operators can earn certification by attending training sessions and completing project assignments in their facilities. Topics include Building Systems Overview; Energy Conservation Techniques; Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems and Controls, Efficient Lighting Fundamentals, Maintenance and Related Codes, Indoor Air Quality, and Facility Electrical Systems. Each of seven training courses consists of classroom study, small group exercises, tests, and, for some of the courses, a project performed on the customer’s facility. Projects demonstrate competence in locating building equipment; distribution paths and control points; equipment energy consumption; HVAC energy inspection reporting; lighting surveys; indoor air pollutant sources and pathways; and facility electrical distribution. Courses are scheduled once per month over an eight-month period.
