How to Apply

There are two criteria for the Operations & Maintenance Training Incentive which must be met in order to receive an incentive payment.

The Applicant must be:
  • Assigned to work at a commercial and/or industrial facility within the Pepco Maryland territory and be present at that facility at least 50% of his or her working hours.
  • Employed in a position of responsibility for the energy management of the facility or has the potential to influence the building’s energy performance.

In cases where the Applicant is a contractor and not a direct employee of the Pepco customer, a representative of the Pepco customer must sign the application to confirm that the Applicant is assigned to work at the customer’s facility as indicated above and that the customer supports the Applicant’s participation in the program.

Many of these certifications involve a number of courses; please submit one application per course.
