Open classes are offered to individuals near or around the same city or region. The $2,000 cost per participant includes lunch, the instructors, class facilitator, and all training materials (7 different class books for the students to keep and refer to in the future) provided by SPEER.
*Please note that beginning in 2017 the BOC program will be aligned with ISO 17024, an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for organizations that certify personnel. This change was initiated by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council (NEEC), the national administrator for the BOC Program, in order to keep pace with industry best practices and the increasing emphasis on professional credentials for workforce development.
Upon completing the Level I BOC course participants will receive a BOC Training Certificate of Completion (TCOC). After sitting in and passing the final exam participants will then receive a BOC certification. The certification exam cost is $285.00.
With many training programs and certifications moving in this direction this standardization will bring supreme value and credibility to both the BOC program and certified operators. To all parties involved the IACET CEU assures that the learner has completed a highly qualified training program that meets the national standard for continuing education.
