Industry Induction Online

Kick start your career with an online induction.

Over the past three decades, the electricity market has evolved significantly. It now involves a much more complex ‘coupling’ between the technical, political and the commercial, blurring the boundaries between the various parts of the supply chain.
Whiteboard’s online induction provides you more than just an understanding of the mechanics. A New Zealand case study and several analogies helps you understand the industry dynamics, kick starting your career and assisting you in your day to day job.

What does this course cover?

  • Basic industry jargon
  • Consumption and its drivers.
  • Generation
  • Security, reliability and system operation.
  • Wholesale and retail markets.
  • Transmission and distribution.
  • The influence politics has on the electricity industry.
  • Investment
  • Future technology

These topics are covered in eleven 10-minute videos.  One video a day will get you up to speed in just over two weeks.

At $175 per person, this course is outstanding value.

Complement this with a one day in-class session with our Welcome to the Electricity Industry course.

"Overall an excellent course. It was rewarding to listen to Dave and Steve’s insights into the NZ electricity industry. The background reading, case studies and demos, lectures and group discussions resulted in a broad understanding of the history and current and future issues facing the New Zealand electricity industry. Well recommended."
