Why Become an Instructor or Coordinator?
Over 100 BOC classes are held each year in the Midwest and as the number grows, MEEA is always looking for instructors and coordinators who are passionate about what they do. Teaching or coordinating BOC is a great opportunity to keep your finger on the pulse of the market, while sharing your knowledge with others in the field.
Instructors teach full day classes in their areas of expertise, using the BOC materials and curriculum provided to cover a wide range of topics including building systems, energy conservation, HVAC systems and controls, facility lighting, environmental health and safety regulations, indoor air quality and facility electrical systems.
Coordinators attend each full day class of a BOC series and act as a communication bridge between the student, the instructors and MEEA. Coordinators provide consistency for the students, help with administrative tasks, aid in the certification process and are overall champions for the BOC program.
