Training

delivering the necessary transfer of knowledge

To bring our best to our clients, we bring our collective knowledge garnered through active involvement with client projects, industry participation, and practical, hands-on utility experience.

  • Flexible Delivery – AESI can deliver training as you need it. We can bring any existing course to your facility or customize an agenda based on your specific requirements. Along with flexibility in its delivery, each training session is prepared and tailored to its audience.
  • Expert Instructors – Tap into the knowledge of our seasoned team and gain a wealth of information – successes and lessons learned – garnered through years of expertise-building with utilities and experience gained from multiple projects.
  • Cost-effective Approach – Each utility has the desire to foster an organizational culture of awareness. We know that no two utilities are identical, but there are definite similarities that afford cost-effectiveness in the delivery of training. AESI training strikes a balance between covering the fundamental concepts and best practices with relevant examples relatable to the utility sector and tailoring the content to the various subject matter experts.
