Building operator certification offered in Santa Fe next year
Beginning in January, Santa Fe Community College will offer a nationally recognized training and certification program for facility managers, operators, and technicians. The Level 1 Building Operator Certification (BOC) is designed to offer job skills and knowledge to improve the energy performance of the buildings these people manage. The 74 hours of training requires a time commitment of two days a month for four months.
There is currently funding available to pay for the training of those already working in building management through the U.S Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration organization. Normal cost of the training is $1,595. The first class will be held on January 10.
To learn more about the training, go to http://greenbuilding.greentraining.sfcc.edu/. The class is limited to 25 people and is first come, first serve.
The coursework is provided by the Santa Fe Community College’s Center of Excellence in Green Building and Energy Efficiency.
