Building Operator Certification Comes to Kentucky

You can help your company or organization save money by taking your energy management skills to the next level through the Building Operator Certification® program.  The Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence (DEDI), the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) and the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) are pleased to announce that the Building Operator Certification® (BOC) program is coming to Kentucky!

BOC is a nationally recognized, eight-day training program focused on giving participants the skills and the perspective they need to understand energy use in their facilities and identify opportunities for efficiency.

Classes are one day approximately every three weeks, spaced over a five month period.  Past participants have included: building engineers, maintenance supervisors, maintenance workers, facility coordinators, HVAC technicians, electricians, operations supervisors, operation technicians, energy managers and others in the facility operations and maintenance field.

With a combination of hands-on and classroom training, BOC delivers immediate results and long-term savings that benefit operators, owners and occupants.  Companies with BOC graduates have reported energy savings of 1-3 percent annually, providing a good return on investment.  This would represent an annual savings of approximately $700 on a monthly energy bill of $2,000 — a 9-month payback.

Tuition is typically $1,695, but thanks to support from DEDI, tuition for this first training series in Louisville is being offered one time only at only $575.  Classes will be held at the University of Louisville Shelby Campus beginning May 16, 2018.

 BOC training will enhance your energy management program, visit the KY BOC webpage for more information and enrollment.
