The Operations and Maintenance (O&M) program consists of six online operations and maintenance courses.
Each course includes discussion forums, checks for understanding and take-back-to-work tools that can be used right away. Each course is designed to be interactive and focuses on all aspects of building operations and maintenance with a special focus on energy management.
O&M courses can be taken individually in any order; however, participants will gain the most by taking the entire program in the order presented. Most of the courses can be completed in 6-8 weeks but we allow for a full three months to accommodate busy schedules.
Courses are offered online through HousingU, BCNPHA’s online learning management system. The program is funded by FortisBC.
The overall goal of the O&M program is to help housing providers operate and maintain affordable housing in a safe, cost effective and energy efficient manner. By the end of the program participants will have created a customized, integrated operations and maintenance plan, designed specifically for their facilities
This program will benefit those just entering the non-profit operations and maintenance profession as well as seasoned non-profit sector employees interested in creating living spaces that run more economically and efficiently.
