The BOC credential program provides technical training and a
nationally-recognized certification in energy efficient operation practices for
building technicians and maintenance workers. The training is classroom based
and provides 74 hours of foundational knowledge in HVAC system operation,
lighting and electrical systems, and building controls. Participants complete
practical, hands-on projects at their facilities between sessions which result
in a set of reports on the building's energy performance, HVAC control system
operation, lighting system equipment, and occupancy schedules.
Upon successful completion of the requirements, participants earn the
industry-recognized BOCŪ credential which is a standard of knowledge and skill
in energy efficiency.

"DDC Systems Networks and Protocols"
by Greg Jourdan, Professor, Environmental Systems & Refrigeration Technology at
>> pdf [80 p, 2.7 mb]
Greg Jourdan gave
March 2, 2012 Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee during the Eastern
Chapter Board meeting.
Greg discussed DDC Controls-Networks-BacNet vs Lon vs. Tridium. His presentation
discussed solutions to bringing multiple DDC controls vendors products under one
software control scheme without changing the hardware I/O (inputs and outputs).
Greg presented an informative program on the cloud and how that technology is
being used to support multiple systems and locations to a central user. Greg
stressed the importance of a dashboard for every system to instantly look at
building performance, measure the result and be able to respond quickly to
changing conditions. Greg also stressed the importance of re-commissioning your
facilities at least every 5 years to ensure the systems and assets installed are
still performing at desired levels and achieving intended results.
