Conference Proceeding by ASHRAE, 2020



This paper documents, in part, the study that was conducted for the ASHRAE Research Project RP-1650, which investigated the training requirements for operations and maintenance (O&M) personnel for sustainable high-performance buildings (HPBs). This study identifies (through a literature review) the different training programs that are available to building operators for the O&M of high-performance systems and equipment that are typically implemented in HPBs. The intent of this paperis to illustrate current training opportunities available in the industry for building operators. The paper also provides commentary and discussion on how these training programs contribute to the knowledge-skill-competencies (KSCs) required by building operators to optimally operate and maintain systems and equipment implemented in HPBs. The paper concludes that a large number and variety of training programsexist, which have different formats that suit the different requirementsand capabilities of O&M personnel. The study also found that the current focus of training material is component based with a strong emphasis on energy efficiency.
