New Building Operator Pathway
The sky is the limit with the new Building Operator Pathway (BOP) for current school building operators and incoming high school juniors! This brand new learning experience for EAIS member school districts offers:
- National Building Operator Certificate (BOC) of Completion
- Work-based learning/internships for students
- College credit
- PD for current staff
- Growing your own future staff
EAIS has created the BOP with input from an advisory commitee of school superintendents and facility managers.
Partners are the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) and Southwestern Community College.
The BOP is a two-year program lasting from 2021-2023. We are thrilled to report that all 24 training spots available in the pilot are full with teams from CAM, Oskaloosa, Clinton, Riverside, South Page, Nodaway Valley, and Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Community School Districts! Stay tuned for information on how to sign up for the next cohort group.
The pilot program is funded through a grant awarded to EAIS from the Iowa Energy Center through the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
