Westar Energy Offers Building Operator Certification Classes

The Kansas Energy Office has approved Westar Energy’s plan to expand its Building Operator Certification program (BOC) training to include municipal and cooperative utility customers. BOC, a licensed program provided through the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA), is a nationally recognized competency-based training and certification program that is designed to inform for building operators about energy efficiency applications and help utilities reduce peak load and defer the need for investing in additional generation capacity. Any building operator responsible for day-to-day maintenance and operation who is interested in learning how to achieve measurable, sustainable energy savings for his or her facility is eligible to participate.
