NYC Retrofit Accelerator Building Operations and Maintenance Trainings

Whether you are a New York City building manager, superintendent, or building operator, the NYC Retrofit Accelerator's hands-on building operations and maintenance trainings are available to help you make informed decisions about how to operate your building efficiently, reduce costs, and increase tenant comfort. You will learn how to:

  • Diagnose energy and water efficiency challenges in your building
  • Implement no- to low-cost energy solutions on your own
  • Schedule and prioritize your projects
  • Leverage available resources to help finance projects covered in the trainings

You will also be provided with information on resources that can help finance the projects covered in the trainings. Information on programs from utilities, the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, and other entities will be available to participants.

Course Offerings

Please note: Registrants must be property managers, superintendents or building maintainers ONLY. Due to limited class size, only 2 staff per building may register for each course.
