CEER Training Academy Programme 2024
Course specific FAQ
When are the classes? What are the different time formats for the trainings?
The variety of formats ensures the interactivity of our trainings and the achievement of the learning objectives set. This also gives the opportunity to participants with limited travel options and/or budget to attend some of the planned events. The mini training format covers transversal topics and facilitates the participation by being less time-consuming and costly.
If necessary, formats can be adapted to specific needs based on the feedback we get.
What do you mean by Level A and Level B?
while Level B trainings are more specialised and cover specific technical areas, such as on REMIT or on energy training.
Who is responsible for developing the content of the courses?
Each CEER training course has a Course Director who is in general responsible for the design and content of the course. The Course Director works closely with the CEER Secretariat to develop the draft programme, to seek input from relevant experts from NRAs working on the topic, primarily at the CEER Work Stream and Working Group level.
Besides the Course Director, each CEER training course has a Course Advisor, usually a member of the Training Academy Advisory Board who provides their expert comments on the programme and suggests possible and relevant trainers. When the draft programme is developed, the input of the Course Advisor ensures a comprehensive approach to the issues while taking into account both academic and practical perspectives.
The Course Director is responsible for the overall course programme. This approach helps ensure the three key features of CEER Training Academy: practitioner method, regulator-centric and collaborative arrangements.
Our trainers are primarily experts from energy regulatory authorities but also from international institutions, academia and the energy industry.

What you mean by buying training credits? How much do they cost?
CEER members and observers can order pre-purchased training credits any time of the year.
1 training credit = 480 EUR. If members and observers order 20 training credits, they receive 1 free training credit as discount.
Credits are usually valid 18 months from the date of purchase.
Member and observer NRAs can check the status of their training credits by contacting the CEER Training Academy at [email protected]
I heard I can pay also by tutor credits. What does that mean?
1 tutor credit = 0.5 training credit
When enough tutor credits are accumulated, the NRA can use them to register a participant.
NRAs can check the number of Tutor credits earned and used by contacting the CEER Training Academy at [email protected]
Can I use a reduction fee? Am I eligible for a scholarship? May I combine it with training credits or tutor credits?
Countries with a GDP per capita below the 90% threshold of the EU-27's GDP per capita (as per the Eurostat official data) can benefit from a 50% fee reduction.
If eligible, each NRA has the right to two scholarships per year. The use of training credits – or in certain cases tutor credits – doesn’t prevent the NRA from benefitting from their scholarship rights. The discounted price will be applied accordingly and only the relevant number of credits will be debited. The trainee indicates in the Training Academy registration form that they wish to pay by training credits and use a scholarship in parallel.
If you are NRA staff and have questions about your right to use your scholarship for the training, please contact [email protected]
