Building Operator Certification Instructor Positions Available

December 1, 2017

 The J.B. Speed School of Engineering’s Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) is partnering with the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) to bring the Building Operator Certification (BOC) program to KY, an energy efficient training program for operators of commercial buildings. The BOC offers opportunities to gain teaching experience, to network with other professionals, and as an avenue of professional development. Funded by the Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence (DEDI), the BOC is currently seeking qualified instructors with experience in operations and maintenance. Instructors teach full day classes in their areas of expertise, using BOC materials and curriculum covering a wide range of topics including building systems, energy conservation, benchmarking, HVAC systems and controls, facility lighting, environmental health and safety regulation, indoor air quality and facility electrical systems.

Instructors are treated as individual contractors, and classes will be assigned based on availability and interest. MEEA does not require a minimum number of classes per year, nor do they guarantee that instructors will be assigned a certain number per year. The application goes through an approval process that may take up to 45 days, so you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Some funding available to purchase instructor books and provide travel reimbursements for up to six new instructors to shadow other instructors. These will be made available to the first six instructors to have their applications submitted and approved. New instructors are typically required to cover their own expenses during the training process.

Applications should be submitted directly to Haley Keegan with MEEA at . Please also email Haley with any questions or contact her directly at (312) 374-0928.
