In addition to the Energy Management - Building Controls 2-year degree, you'll receive 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training, beginning the summer after the first year of classroom instruction. Regionally average hourly wages will be paid by the training agent (employer) and incrementally scale upward in four steps based on program completion, going from 60% to 90% of journey-level wages. Throughout your apprenticeship, you'll work in the fast-growing field of high-performance buildings and use your skills to reduce energy consumption, improve the health of building occupants and the environment. Upon completion, we recommend you also complete the Association of Energy Engineers Certified Energy Managers exam.

If you're enrolled in the Energy Management - Building Controls Program and are ready to apply to the apprenticeship program, please see the Associated Builders and Contractors PNW website (link is external) to find details on the application process. 

The Building Energy Controls Apprenticeship (BECA) has partnered with the University of Oregon, Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory (ESBL) on this project. The ESBL is a Department in the UO School of Architecture.  The ESBL will be working with students that are part of the apprenticeship program to find training partners.  The University has a vast network of operators and managers of buildings across the nation.  These contacts will provide students with opportunities in a variety of buildings.  To learn more about the University of Oregon ESBL, please visit their page at ESBL
