"I've been with the company doing control works for exactly one year, went from never seeing a control program, not stepping foot in the field for first 6 months, to now being transitioned in to a lead guy on jobs."
"I believe this course covers the basics in great detail and breaks things down into what you actually need to know. This saves a lot of time and allows you to cover more area. I also think it is very helpful that Phil is readily available for questions of any sort. All of my questions were answered within minutes. "
Hoffman Building Technologies
"I had to work with a commissioning agent recently that I had worked with in the past. He right away noticed I was more confident using the sequence to check and edit my programs to match."
"I feel really good about using this course because you can complete it on your own time. and being in controls we're traveling all the time so trying to get us in a classroom setting is very difficult. I've actually gone thru controls courses at MATC and I feel that your method of teaching was great and even better than being in a classroom setting."
CBRE | ESI
"I would highly recommend this course because of all the resources it provided me and how it taught me to use those resources. For example, all the templates that help with completing point lists, RFIs, BOMs, etc. I can now use these templates for future projects and I will be able to complete control submittals more efficiently. I also found very useful the tips for working with Visio, Excel, and Word. "
"This course is loaded with valuable information for multiple systems and points of interest. I would highly recommend this course to any partner or colleague interested in learning more about how to set up, inspect, and operate multiple systems for Building control and automation. I am able to work more independently since taking this course, I have successfully troubleshooted a number of issues I have encountered without the need to ask for help of the senior technician, and I now understand how many devices operate including their purpose, and what to do if that device malfunctions."
"This course will pay for itself in half a day. What I've learned in this course has enabled me to do in minutes what used to take hours. This course has paid for itself many times over... "
"This course would be great for a first time building automation engineer with not much experience. Your attention to detail throughout the course makes the student feel like they can confidently complete a project from start to finish. Your personal insight into the process is very helpful also."
"I am newer to the BAS industry and this helped me have a better understanding of how the industry works and how you can bring value to your company. A challenge for me was understanding the programming side. Phil goes into plenty of detail on how and why a certain system is setup a certain way. For me knowing why and how something is set up, helps me tremendously."
"I didn't realize a course like this existed, there is such a dearth of training materials in this industry and I have been so overwhelmed in starting this role. I think this course has given me a language aptitude for the industry I didn't have previously. I've highly recommended your course and structure to my colleagues and even some of my customers!"
-Stephanie McCurley Mason
" This course for me was able to take me from Not ever even laying eyes on a sequence of operations to being able to follow one and understand what the overall expectations. Just being able to look at a document with confidence is really going to help me take hold of this career."
"This course gave me a different perspective on the tasks I have been doing for years. For me, the course was kind of like learning a second language, which provides you with a better understanding of your native language. This course is helpful and instructive, and no one else is teaching it like this."

Do you know how much it costs to have a new or existing employee shadow your senior technicians on a job site?
Our customers had an average billable rate of 41% prior to enrolling their students in our programs. That means they were paying their employees to work 32 hours a week and NOT billing their customers!
I (Phil Zito, CEO of BAM LLC) managed a $60M operations team with 22 BAS professionals. I know first hand how hard it can be to develop your employees when you are managing finances, sales, and operations (plus the occasional site visit).

Hi my name is Phil Zito and I am going to provide you and your employees the best BAS training to help you grow your business and succeed even more in the world of Building Automation.
My backstory: I started back in 2007 with no knowledge of BAS. Through the help of some great mentors and many, many long nights of self-study I taught myself BAS, IT, and Systems integration.
Over the course of 10 years I went from a struggling technician to, leading a $60M dollar branch with 22 techs and project managers, and before I resigned to start Building Automation Monthly I was leading the technical systems integration program at Johnson Controls for a $250M line of business.
I know exactly what your employees need to know and I have the field experience to back it up!
“Everyone is capable of succeeding in Building Automation. All you need is the right guide to show you the way and point out the landmines along the path. I am that guide.”

The course platform supports comments, which students use extensively for their questions. Questions are answered within 24-hours (often faster) during normal working hours.
From the first day you enroll employees into our courses our training admin will begin to track their progress. We have automated weekly e-mails that are sent to them to remind them of their assigned lessons.
We can also provide status reports for these students to you via e-mail on a regular basis if required.

Each course was designed to be completed over 30 days. Each day will take on average 15 minutes. However, we unlock the entire course immediately so your employees could conceivably consume the information faster.
All of BAM's videos are available on our course website which is supported by the best-in-class online training platform Thinkific. Upon purchasing the course your employee will receive a series of e-mails that guide you through how to access the course.

We have an optional exam that students can complete at the end of the course. If they complete the exam with a score of 90% or greater they will receive a certificate of completion.
