Building Operator Certification

Building Operator Certification (BOC®) is a nationally recognized, competency-based training and certification program that offers facilities personnel the improved job skills and knowledge to transform workplaces to be more comfortable, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

The BOC credential is recognized by employers across the country as a sign of the value and contributions certified facilities management personnel can bring to their organizations.

A new Building Operator Certification (BOC®) Consortium has been established in South Carolina to provide this nationally recognized training building maintenance technicians. This consortium - consisting of Greenville Technical College and Trident Technical College, with leadership from the SC Technical College System - is funded, in part, by the South Carolina Department of Energy. By offering the BOC® training in Greenville and Charleston, the consortium will provide statewide opportunities for building owners and managers to pursue low-cost energy efficiency options and improve their bottom line.

Here is what some of our BOC students are saying about the training:
"BOC makes me think more about the overall building performance rather than looking at one area of the building.” – Jim Funderburk, Clover School District #2

 “Very informative.  To operate our facilities as efficiently as possible, this is exactly the information we need – lighting, HVAC, etc.” – Mark Borgsteede, Greenville Technical College

“This training brings into focus many of the terms I have heard for years.  This training applies to real world situations and enables me to perform energy audits without hiring a consultant.”

It is a necessary class for anyone in operations or maintenance.” – Eddie Brown, Fluor Daniel Corp.
