How to Get Certified

BOC training equips building operators and engineers with the skills and knowledge to incorporate energy efficiency into their operations and maintenance practices to reduce energy usage and costs.

Are You Ready?

Those choosing to obtain BOC certification must meet certain minimum eligibility requirements of education and experience and must commit to completion of all class requirements to receive the BOC credential.

Level I Certification

After attending and satisfactorily completing courses for Level I training, individuals certified at BOC Level I will have demonstrated increased knowledge of their facilities' electrical, HVAC, and lighting systems. The Level I course series offers eight one day classes consisting of classroom training, facility-based project assignments and in-class exams administered at the end of each day of training. Completion of Level I requires a time commitment of 74 hours.

Level II Certification

Level I graduates who want to continue their training have the option of attending the Level II course series, which offers more targeted training. Building operators with extensive experience may be eligible to enroll in a Level II series without completing Level I. To become Level II certified, participants must attend four core classes, two supplemental classes, pass class exams and complete facility-based projects for a total of 61 training hours.
