BAS Marketplace

BAS Careers

As the automation in the building technology sector advances, employers face a serious shortage of skilled BAS workforce.  Experts and practitioners point to a lack of technical professionals in the BAS marketplace.  Technical professionals are those individuals with some postsecondary education, but less than a four-year college degree.  Postsecondary education or training requirements can include associate’s degrees, vocational certificates, significant on-the-job training, previous work experience, or generally “some college” without having earned a degree.

BAS Core Skills

Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are impacting the workforce needs in energy and related occupations.  BAS professionals will be expected to acquire and balance diverse set of competencies– the knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) to achieve workplace success.  According to a research report by McKinsey the strongest growth for demands will be in technological skills, which will rise by 55% by 2030.  ACP’s marketplace studies find that a balance of foundational competencies in combination with general- and specific-industry technical KSAs will prepare a skilled workforce for the 21st century BAS jobs.
