DEP Offers Free Energy Efficiency Training, Express Your Interest Now!

The Department of Environmental Protection is offering two free energy efficiency training opportunities for facility managers and HVAC technicians at K-12 schools and local governments throughout Pennsylvania's northern tier.
Both training opportunities— Building Operator Certification and Building Retuning— are funded by a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy.
BOC is geared to those with two or more years of experience in building operations. The course consists of eight, 8-hour classroom sessions focused on HVAC systems and controls, fundamentals for efficient lighting, and indoor environmental quality.
In addition to the 64 hours of in-classroom instruction, there are also open-book, multiple-choice exams and several homework assignments. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive their BOC credential.
The value of this free training opportunity is $1,695 per person!
BRT is a systematic approach to finding low-to-no-cost energy efficiency improvements in buildings and consists of approximately 20 hours of instruction for a small cohort of 8 to 12 facility managers.
Dates and locations have not yet been established for these training workshops. The workshops will be located where the level of interest is greatest. If you are interested in BOC or BRT, please contact DEP’s Heidi Kunka at 717-783-9989 or
