Building Operator Training

Employee Training

Building Operator Training (BOT) is a training program for operations and maintenance staff working in commercial buildings. Your business can save energy by providing this training to your employees who are directly responsible for the maintenance of building equipment and day-to-day building operations.

Your employees can get trained by attending BOT courses, passing each course exam and completing the required hands-on projects. We want to support you in offering this training, so we offer a rebate of up to $1,100 per trained employee.
