If you want to learn building automation then you are in the right place.
My name is Phil Zito and I am the CEO of Smart Buildings Academy. If you are a technician, operator, salesperson, or engineer the Smart Buildings Academy podcast is for you.
Each week I tap into my vast experience in Building Automation and teach you the things no one else teaches.
You will learn about BAS, HVAC, IT, Energy Management, Sales, Operations, Project Management, Cyber Security and so much more.
Prior to founding Smart Buildings Academy, I held a variety of BAS roles in service, install, operations management, sales, and most recently I led the technical integration program at Johnson Controls. Suffice to say, I've been in your shoes and I know what you need to learn.
I look forward to guiding you through BAS in the weekly Smart Buildings Academy Podcast.

I am thankful for these podcasts I just recently entered the industry on the owner side and having these to listen to when I’m driving or doing other things has made the concepts sink in quicker. Phil breaks things down well, their courses are good as well
I’m so grateful for this podcast. There is no study programs that I know of in universities that cover mechanical system, IT and building automation. As an energy engineer I’ve been so hungry for the information provided in this podcast. Thank you Phil!
Phil does a great job with these podcasts and touches on topics you can’t hear much about thru other resources. I was real green when entering the Building Automation world about a year ago, layering these podcasts on top of SBA coursework has been critical to my learning
