There is a lot of technology at work in today’s commercial and institutional buildings, from energy efficient boilers to complex HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, air conditioning). Building systems require regular, skilled maintenance—mechanical and technical. That’s why building systems technicians are always in demand. It’s a job that requires good problem-solving skills and the ability to work independently or as part of a team. Building Systems Technician is a one-year certificate program that consists of 3 semesters between September - June. You’ll receive comprehensive training in maintaining, operating and repairing electrical, ventilation, refrigeration and water treatment systems. Most courses include practical activities to develop your troubleshooting skills. You’ll also get hands-on experience with a boiler during a work experience in your second term. It’s a great way to use what you’ve learned in class and labs in a real-world setting. It’s also a way to develop contacts for possible future employment.
