Building Operator Training - BOC

operator trainingBuilding Operator Certification (BOC) is the leading training and certification program for building engineers and maintenance personnel. The hands on training helps graduates make their buildings more comfortable, efficient, and environmentally friendly, thanks to skills they master in class. The BOC credential is just as valuable to the building owner as it is to the operator. Graduates help their organizations substantially cut operating costs, as much as $20,000 per year! Through our partnership, GSA members are eligible to receive discounted tuition for the BOC program.
