LEESBURG - Lake County facilities management professionals will want to enroll in Lake-Sumter Community College’s (LSCC) Building Operations Management program designed to aid businesses in optimizing the performance of their physical plant and office facilities. The online and text-based self-study portion of the program is available starting Aug. 15. The six days of classroom instruction, Oct. 17-19 and 26-28, meet in the Leesburg Campus’ M Building from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. A $200 fee covers all materials and the Sustainability Facility Professional credential application.
Building Operations Management is the fourth in a series of LSCC educational programs promoting beneficial energy efficiency and conservation, while enhancing the quality of Lake County’s workforce. Using the International Facility Management Association’s Sustainability Facility Professional program as framework, the LSCC training is created specifically for experienced facility managers interested in expanding their knowledge in the area of sustainable facility and building operations.
Online course content explores the alignment of sustainability principles with organizational strategies; the development and implementation of sustainability policies and programs; and the management and operation of sustainable facilities, including all areas of business infrastructure - energy, water, waste, materials and resources and environmental quality. Classroom instructors are seasoned industry practitioners who can share industry-based experiences, while facilitating interactive forums. Successful completers will be eligible to receive the SFP credential.
“The BOM program is a tremendous benefit for Lake County businesses,” says Lake County’s Sustainability Planner Lori Barnes, “Just as the SFP credential is to our workforce’s facilities professionals.”
LSCC is providing this training as part of its partnership with Lake County under its Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant project which subsidizes the $3,000 per person cost of the course. For program information, call 352-365-3530 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
