In-House Training

As our industry continues to evolve and the pressure for improved performance increases, travel time and budgets are scarce. If it’s difficult for your staff and governing board to attend education courses outside of the office, let us come to you. The Academy can deliver the training you need, when and where you need it — an ideal option for groups of eight or more. We can bring any course to your facility or customize an agenda based on your needs.

For Associations and Joint Action Agencies

Hosting an in-house course for your members is a great way to provide them with high-quality, discounted training in a convenient location within driving distance. This is especially helpful for small utilities in your region that may have trouble leaving the office, or for members with travel and budget restrictions.

Consider adding one of our courses as a half- or full-day seminar prior to your conferences. We will help you choose a format suited to your requirements and, by providing and tailoring a course to your goals and objectives, we can help ease the stress of developing a conference program.


In-house training is available at a flat fee plus travel expenses for the instructor(s). The flat fee covers course development, instruction, and materials. You must provide a training room and cover all onsite expenses such as audio-visual equipment and refreshments.
