BOC testimonials and graduates

Mike Hader – Johnson Controls

Jim Stadler – Project Engineer, Hill's Pet Nutrition, Topeka

"The program content is well-suited for the intended audience. The participants gain cross-functional knowledge from experienced instructors, each with areas of different expertise. This format builds a more complete perspective of essential operations and maintenance necessary to achieve and maintain maximum energy efficiency. The program is beneficial for managers, as well as operations/maintenance staff."

Dave L. Ryan – Maintenance Director, Harvey County, Newton

"I have enjoyed the 2009-2010 BOC classes. The teachers and subjects were very informative. The variety of systems covered helps me in maintaining and upgrading various heating and air systems by their age. The information I gathered will help me implement projects based on efficiency."

Mike Lour – Public Service Executive Kansas Department of Administration, Topeka

"I am truly impressed with the course materials and knowledge of the instructors in BOC classes. I have been in maintenance for over 30 years and have a pretty good background in facilities management. The diversity of the class participants and facilities each is involved with brings real-world problems and experiences to this class. This is the best overall class I have taken."

Amy Lange – Facilities Coordinator, USD 305 Salina Public Schools, Salina

"BOC is a great way for new facilities managers to gain a better understanding of their building's HVAC and electrical systems. While I understood how new systems were designed and intended to operate from my undergraduate coursework in construction science and management, BOC has enabled me to intelligently discuss preventative maintenance of aged systems and recommend energy efficiency improvements with our district's maintenance team."

Larry Weber - Vice President, The Garvey Center, Wichita

"I will tell you it was one of the most valuable continuing education classes I have ever taken. I do not have any suggestions for improvement (which is unusual for me!). I took away something from each class that I was able to turn around and use in my workplace. From the Watt Checker device to find mechanical ballast to the thermal imager camera to use in finding energy issues and everything in between it was all useful. As a result of the class I made changes that reduced my energy cost almost $20,000 a year!"
