ERRA has developed a comprehensive needs assessment and training programme through which it provides capacity building services since early 2000s. These programmes are built upon sound working knowledge of regulatory economics, an understanding of policy impacts and the ability to navigate national policy processes, and effective agency management of the legal and organizational processes necessary for adequate “due-process” protection in regulatory activities. In addition, training programs also take into account local conditions and national values as well as the increasing movements toward regional markets and expanded trade in electricity, which are moving nations into more compatible, harmonized regulatory arrangements.

A unique feature of ERRA’s training programs is the use of current and former ERRA member regulators as instructors. This characteristic allows ERRA to design training courses that focus equally on practical application and theoretical methodology and include the transfer of relevant direct experience. To date the ERRA training initiative features a variety of junior to advanced level courses offered in traditional classroom format. All training programs include preparatory homework, practical exercises, simulations, participant case studies, and exams and systematic evaluation of results.

ERRA Certified Energy Regulator Programme

ERRA developed the Certified Energy Regulator training certificate to indicate that participants in ERRA courses have achieved a set level of fluency in the regulatory field. The feedback from participants has been positive and provides them with a recognized certificate that enables them and others to know of their regulatory competency.

In order to receive the certicifate, participants should collect at least 30 credits within 3 years.

Credits awarded upon successful completion of the ERRA Training Courses: 10 CER credits. Criteria for a successful completion of the classroom training courses:
  • Students must attend at least 80% of the classes and exercises of the training course
  • Students must accomplish the final test of the training course within the classroom in a time period specified by the organizers
  • Students must achieve 60% of the final test in order to earn 10 CER credits. Test scores below 60% will result in 5 CER credits only.
