Administrative Professional Series: What Every Professional Needs to Know - All Three Webinars, October 5-21, 2021
All utility employees, regardless of position or responsibility, need to understand their chosen business. The more you understand the complexity of the electric utility business, the better you can serve and integrate with your co-workers, consumers, and other stakeholders. This two-part webinar is designed to acquaint non-technical employees with the basics of electricity and the electric system, including generation, transmission, and distribution. Special attention will be given to public power and its role in the development of the North American grid. You will leave with a deeper knowledge and greater appreciation of the utility business model. Information on each attendee’s state and region will be provided.
Debra Ballard, The Ballard Group
