Building Operator Certification (BOC®) is a nationally recognized, competency-based training and certification program that offers facilities personnel the improved job skills and knowledge to transform workplaces to be more comfortable, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.
The BOC credential is recognized by employers across the country as a sign of the value and contributions certified facilities management personnel can bring to their organizations.
About the Program
Running a building isn’t the job it used to be. The complexities and interdependence of a facility’s systems – HVAC, electric, lighting, etc. – require an understanding of the big picture so that they work together optimally to promote energy efficiency.
The Building Operator Certification program trains facilities personnel to understand how these systems work together, and how to bring them to their most efficient level of operation. Level 1 training provides an overview of critical building systems. Level 2 emphasizes preventative maintenance and more targeted training. Find more information about the curriculum here.
Consistently, BOC Program graduates and their employers recognize the positive results of BOC training and the value those results bring. Graduates come away with improved job skills and a career-enhancing certification. Employers appreciate the bottom line cost savings that result from increased energy efficiency. Additionally, building occupants benefit from a more comfortable environment due to improvements made to air and ventilation systems.
A certificate of successful completion of the program is given to all students who complete their 5 assigned projects and pass a test at the end of each class.
The BOC certification is given when a student successfully passes the national BOC exam.
