Introduction to CEER Training Academy

CEER is committed to supporting its members and observers in their daily work. As part of these efforts, it has decided to develop training courses with a view to building a full programme of training opportunities for energy regulators.

The underlying concept for the development of training by CEER is that it should concentrate on training in areas in which we have particular specialist experience and in which we can excel, addressing the needs of staff across the organisation: from an introduction to regulatory work; to developing key expert skills; to offering senior staff and leaders insights into policy development and European decision-making. This means a focus on delivering high quality training on the practice of regulation and on job-related skills for regulatory staff. CEER's training programme is built around three key features:

1   Practitioner Method
Practical topics relating directly to energy regulation for on-the-job and professional development
2   Regulator-centric
Designed and led by regulators for regulators, with exclusive access to leading experts in the energy sector
3   Collaborative atmosphere
Exchange views and learn from peers in the regulatory community from across Europe
Our modular approach in designing the course programme supports over time the development of professional expertise in energy regulation, covering wholesale market, network and retail/consumer issues. Designed around European experience and practices, the courses also allow for the sharing of regulatory experience and approaches more broadly. 

Our lecturers come primarily from the regulators and also include international institutions, academia and energy industry professionals. The course programme is advised by distinguished members of our Training Academy Advisory Board, comprising senior representatives from the European institutions, academia, energy industry and former regulators.  

Staff interested in attending any of these courses are invited to register online by the dates indicated on the respective pages.

Learn. Develop. Lead.
