Check out our new Building Operator Certification training program. If energy efficiency isn’t on your current list of capabilities, this is a great place to start. You will learn the nuts and bolts of energy efficiency from the maintenance technician’s perspective—the people who really know how to make buildings perform their best. We hope you will like our new two-in-one approach to basic First Aid/CPR training. You can complete the online portion of an AHA course at your convenience, then schedule a skills check-off session on the same day you plan to attend one of our other courses. Browse our new course offerings and let us know if you don’t see the course, the date, the time, or the delivery option you prefer. We look forward to seeing you soon! ~ Joy N.
