Ames - Level I - October 2017

Level I Training Series

Building Operator Certification (BOC) training includes nearly 74 hours of classroom and project work (7.4 CEUs) in building systems operation and maintenance. Each course in the series is completed in a one day training session, except BOC 1001 Energy Efficient Operation of Building HVAC Systems, which is a two day course. To graduate from the series, participants must pass a test at the end of each training day and complete five assigned projects. Unless otherwise noted, training begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends by 4:00 p.m. Early registration is encouraged.

All graduates of this series will earn a Training Certificate of Completion. As of January 1, 2017, BOC is aligned with ISO 17024 and requires graduates to pass a third-party administered exam to earn the Certified Building Operator credential. Click Here to learn about the difference between the Training Certificate of Completion and the Certified Building Operator.
