AESP is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). AESP complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation, AESP is authorized to issue the IACET CEU. AESP instructors disclose in advance that they have no interest in any product, service, or material discussed during the course. This information is stated orally and in the training course handbook.

Course Description:

This training will be covered over the course of 2 days. Both days will consist of 2.5 hours of learning time.

Utilities design programs with a specific outcome in mind. Typical desired outcomes are hitting savings goals and spending targets or transforming the market. Sometimes utilities design programs to address needs in specific segments like low-income, small business, or agriculture. Seldom do programs measure success by equity or inclusiveness because it is difficult to measure and then evaluate. In this course, attendees will define what equity means to them and their organizations, understand why upfront data collection is critical to planning equitable programs and conducting evaluations, and understand how to apply an equity lens to program design or redesign.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe what an equitable program is and is not.
  • Identify your baseline with data.
  • Identify data collection and research methodologies.
  • Integrate and leverage data in equitable program design.
  • Measure your success.

*Attendees must earn an 70% or higher on the final course test in order to earn 0.5 CEUs.

Cancellations received no later than 14 days prior to the training date will receive a refund, minus a 5% processing fee if paid with a credit card. Cancellations received after the cutoff date and no-shows will not receive a refund (cash or points). AESP reserves the right to cancel a training course at any time with reasonable notice given to all participants.
