Our courses and training events are separated into four categories: Oil & Gas; Renewable Energy & Climate Change, Finance, and Leadership & Management. These include in-person and virtual seminars, workshops, bespoke in-house training, and short courses.
Our short courses take the form of several lectures over multiple weeks (typically, four to six weeks) on a selected topic. All our training is open to practitioners, regulators, organisations and individuals operating within or with an interest in the energy sector, particularly the African energy sector.
A crucial part of fulfilling the mission to transition the African Energy sector from higher dependency on foreign personnel to sustainable national dependency lies in the ability to influence policies and practices within the sector. Our workshops and seminars are dedicated to engaging with policy leaders and regulators within the Energy industry, through the analysis of legislation/regulation, and making viable proposals for reform. These are distinct from broader training workshops as the objective is to influence legislative and/or regulatory reform.
Oil & Gas
We provide a range of seminars, workshops and short courses for oil and gas professionals. These include topics dedicated to understanding energy contracts and the implementation of contracts. Also, there are workshops that engage with the plethora of issues in the energy sector, from legal, contractual and economic perspectives.
Some of our training include:
- The Priority of Local Content
- Oil & Gas Risk Management
- Reshaping your Organisation: Local Content in Oil and Gas
- A Ten Year Review of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Act
- An Evaluation of Local Content Laws in the African Oil and Gas Sector
- The Localisation of Strategies in the African Oil and Gas Sector
Renewable Energy & Climate Change
The world is in a global energy transition; with major moves from traditional E & P strategies to cleaner forms of energy. Africa cannot afford to be left behind, and as such, practitioners operating within this sector must further skill themselves to ensure relevance. Our training events span from introductory courses for beginners, to seminars and workshops for experts within the sector.
Some of our training include:
Finance is one of the most crucial element in any energy project. Despite the growth of the energy sector across Africa, the industry has yet to adequately tackle the challenge of local access to capital. Furthermore, the complexities inherent in financing and refinancing can often leave practitioners, local investors and other interested parties, at a roadblock.
Our training programmes will provide you with an understanding of financing in the energy sector, as well as critically evaluate existing frameworks in the area of access of capital.
Areas of training include:
Leadership and Management
Our range of training covers essential development workshops for new professionals in the Energy industry, to programmes suited to seasoned professionals.
Additionally, we offer bespoke leadership programmes which involves an initial assessment to understand the vision and goals of the Person or the Organisation. This is often followed by a ‘Development Needs Analysis’ session to understand your leadership development journey and where it is you seek to get to. We will work with you to create a focused development plan and establish how best to implement the agreed programmes under the plan.
Some of our seminars and short courses include:
