Effective use of new technologies and new processes associated with high-performance buildings requires a workforce that is adequately trained to make decisions and implement them to maximum benefit. Facilities managers should have the skills and training necessary to understand the interaction of complex building systems and how to operate them effectively. Implementation of the Federal Building Personnel Training Act of 2010 should help to ensure that DOD facilities managers are certified in the required competencies and skills.
