Are you ready to take the next step in advancing your career as a public power executive or utility accountant? If so, now’s the time to register and confirm your spot for the initial courses in TVPPA’s Certified Power Executive or Certified Utility Accountant programs.

TVPPA Education & Training department’s Certified Power Executive (CPE) is a unique professional certification program specifically designed to help mid-to-upper level managers of public power distribution systems advance to the next stage of their careers. The program helps provide managers with a better understanding of their roles and the responsibilities of running a public power company. The nine program courses cover topics including strategic planning, leadership skills, rates and pricing and many other topics critical to managing a successful public power company. The first course in the program – Leadership Bridge – will be held on February 16 at TMEPA in Brentwood, Tenn. 

Our Certified Utility Accountant (CUA) program helps lay a solid foundation of knowledge to public utility accounting staff who are new to accounting or who have a non-accounting background. The CUA program consists of a core accounting curriculum ranging from basic to advanced level classes. Participants will also learn about electric system basics, time management and legal issues for accountants. Registration for Utilities Accounts Classifications & Principles on February 22 is now open.
