Building Operator Training Program

Effective building operation is essential for a building to perform optimally. Efficient buildings are only efficient when managed to utilize the systems appropriately. Training of building operators will give the staff needed skills to reduce the energy use in their building through operational and equipment changes.

To address these issues EGLE Energy Services will offer financial incentives to reduce the registration costs of trainings for operators of public and non-profit buildings in Michigan. Project work must be completed between 10/1/2021 and 7/31/2022.
