Building Automation Systems

Building Automation is a strong growth industry, forecasted to rise at about 10% per year, well above average. In this rapidly developing market, it’s more important than ever for professionals who work with HVAC, lighting and other building systems to gain knowledge and experience in how to effectively and fully utilize their building management platforms.


Having a Building Automation Certificate from The Energy Institute at SLCC designates you as a skilled professional in the operations and maintenance of building automation systems. In these courses you will get hands-on training from industry professionals that will help you take your career to the next level.
