Building Operators: Grid and Occupant Training
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Council (NEEC) partnered with Northeastern University and Washington State University to expand its Building Operator Certification® (BOC) training to emphasize grid-interactive efficient buildings and occupant-centric controls with a focus on an entry- and pre-entry-level workforce. The team developed a new curriculum in the form of Building Operators: Grid and Occupant (BOGO) Training to expand and enhance the BOC.
According to this case study from Better Buildings, the new BOGO curriculum is designed to target a younger, entry- and pre-entry-level workforce through a partnership with Boston Public Schools and illustrates the career paths available within the building operator field.
To learn more about the BOGO curriculum and how it aims to optimize energy consumption, decrease stress on the electric grid, and lower building carbon emissions, download the case study “Building Operators: Grid and Occupant Training” here:
