Those choosing to attend BOC training must meet eligibility requirements of education and experience and must commit to completion of all class requirements to receive the BOC credential.

Level I Training

After attending and satisfactorily completing courses for Level I training, individuals will have demonstrated increased knowledge of their facilities’ electrical, HVAC, and lighting systems. The Level I course series offers eight days of classroom training, facility-based project assignments and in-class tests administered at the end of each day of training. Completion of Level I requires a time commitment of 74 hours.

Level II Training

Level I graduates who want to continue their training have the option of attending the Level II course series, which offers more targeted training. Building operators with extensive experience may be eligible to enroll in a Level II series without completing Level I. To complete Level II training and earn a certificate of completion, participants must attend four core classes, two supplemental classes, pass class tests, and complete facility-based projects for a total of 61 training hours.

Certification vs Certificate

Graduates of BOC Level I training may earn a Training Certificate of Completion or a Certified Building Operator credential. Training Certificate of Completions are earned by all graduates of training courses. The Certified Building Operator credential is earned by graduates passing the Certification Exam at a third-party testing center. The credential is only available for Level I. All Level II training graduates will earn a Training Certificate of Completion.
