Financial Planning, Management & Cost of Service Studies: What Managers Need to Know (online)

Course Overview

With ever-increasing pressures and challenges on utilities from heightened customer expectations, changing regulations, technology advances, and a changing workforce, those who lead and manage public power utilities must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to create an effective and sustainable organization with engaged, skilled and committed employees. This course is part of the Public Power Manager Certificate Program, designed for new generation of leaders as well as existing supervisors and managers. Participation in this highly inter-active program developed specifically for public power will help leaders provide organizational direction as they navigate a changing and complex industry environment.  

Join this class to learn about the financial management, budgeting, cost of service studies and the various forms of electric rates. Attendees will learn how to convey these methods to utility policymakers to aid in decision making. Click here to register!

Courses can also be taken individually, for those who aren’t pursing the certification. To earn a Public Power Manager certificate, participants must complete the three required Courses listed below, then within a year of completing the program curriculum, complete a post-course project that applies principles from the six key leadership dimensions learned in class. Participants may choose to complete one of three project types.
