The Building Operator Certification training program second round of Level I classes has been scheduled to begin on August 16, 2018 in Winchester, Kentucky and will be hosted by the East Kentucky Power Cooperative.
Building Operator Certification (BOC) is a nationally recognized, competency-based program focusing on energy-efficient building operations and preventive maintenance procedures. The program will train facility personnel to understand how their building systems work together, and how to bring them to their most efficient level of operation.
The Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) and the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) have collaborated to bring the Building Operator Certification (BOC) program to the Commonwealth of Kentucky through funding provided by the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet.
Building Operator Certification (BOC) training includes nearly 74 hours of classroom and project work (7.4 CEUs) in building systems operation and maintenance. Each class in the series is completed in one day, except BOC 1001 – Energy Efficient Operation of Building HVAC Systems, which is a two day class. To complete the series, participants must pass a test at the end of each training day and complete five assigned projects. Tuition must be paid prior to the first day of class.
KPPC will provide coaching assistance to training participants for course assignments and facility-level operations to enhance effectiveness and increase implementation rates.
Through funding support by the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, the tuition fee has been reduced from $1695 to $895 per person!
