Meet Your Instructor

Phil Zito, CEO Smart Buildings Academy


I'm Phil Zito. I created Smart Buildings Academy, formerly Building Automation Monthly, in 2012 to share knowledge with fellow BAS professionals. I saw a gap in training was being done across the industry. I held various BAS roles at Johnson Controls including:

► Technical Integration Program Manager
► Technology Ecosystem Manager
► Project Development Engineer- Analytics
► Operations Manager
► Service Technician

Look, I know what it feels like to come home, completely zapped after spending all day working on a 140-degree roof. You feel drained, you know you need to do something to get ahead, but you just can’t summon the energy. I understand how challenging it can be to become the highly efficient and effective BAS professionals you know you can be while juggling your responsibilities. That's why I created SBA to make it as easy as possible for you. Our courses run at YOUR pace, but we also offer biweekly office hours in case you need some help with the material so you can stay on track through completion. You've got this! And we're here to help you succeed.
