Change Management Certification Program (CMP) – NEW!

In Partnership with:

TidalShift



Course Summary:

The energy sector is changing rapidly! Disruptive technologies, evolving customer expectations and the emergence of new market entrants are causing major transformational change. LDCs now need leaders qualified to manage and lead teams through these changes. Learning how to capitalize on incremental or transformational changes in quickly diversifying and regulatory complex environments requires sophisticated change management strategies and skills.

Partnering with TidalShift and APMG International, participants can earn the Change Management Foundation Certification™, and the internationally recognized designation of Change Management Practitioner™ (CMP). Change Management Foundations will help you understand how you deal with change as an individual, as a member of a team/organization and as a leader. Upon successful completion of this course, candidates are eligible to participate in the Change Management Practitioner course, which focuses on understanding how to apply and tailor change management guidance in a given organizational change situation. Both courses are customized to the unique requirements of the LDC sector.
