Each year, we develop dozens of trainings, stakeholder meetings and educational webinars across our expertise areas. Our trainings provide technical information and help our clients better understand their customers. We take great care to fully understand the topic or problem of interest and then provide a training program customized to our client’s needs.
50001 Ready Cohorts
We have led numerous cohorts that walk companies through each step of the 50001 Ready program to help them obtain recognition and establish their energy management processes. Each cohort consists of a group of five to nine single- or multisite organizations and includes support over six to twelve months. Participants receive monthly cohort training webinars, monthly virtual one-on-one coaching sessions, on-demand guidance and opportunities for peer-to-peer learning.
