Local Government Training and Forms ➞
Knowledge is power when it comes to operating buildings efficiently. The Building Operator Certification training gives building managers the knowledge to ensure the systems in a facility work together to optimize energy performance. Once certified, managers have the skills to make changes that reduce energy costs and improve comfort at little or no cost. Often, cost savings can be realized within a short payback period.
This training is appropriate for all building managers. The course is technical and would be valuable for those who manage building equipment and operations.
