Building Operator Level 3

New to the industry

If you are looking to become a building operator, then we recommend taking the Building Operator Level 3 online course.

Building Operator Level 3 – Introduction to Building Operations is a great way to start your introduction to the industry! This 50 module program is equivalent to 30 hours of classroom instruction and allows users to take what they need, whether it be a refresh on a certain aspect of building operations or take the entire course in preparation for the Building Operator Level 2 – 5th Class Power Engineering Course.

The course covers safety training related to operation of a commercial building, Interpersonal, Computer, Administrative, Facility and Process Equipment, Rotating Equipment, Facility Maintenance and Construction. The students will also have to complete competencies before they successfully complete this program.


Upgrading Your Skills

If you are an existing operator, or are in a similar career, then you may wish to take the Self-Assessment module which will allow you to perform a gap analysis of your skills against the profile requirements. BOMA Calgary, in partnership with World ICU, has developed the Building Operator Self-Assessment, which recognizes your current experience and identifies areas that require training. If there are gaps you will be directed to the modules in the Building Operator Level 3 course, so that you can update your skills. Once you successfully complete the competencies within the self-assessment you do not need to take the online course.

Once you have completed the self-assessment, you are eligible for validation of those skills by a BOMA Calgary approved Validator. Validators set their own fees for this third-party review.
