Training & Development

building-226812_640A key service provided by Consensia Limited is training and executive awareness for client companies. Building on the core energy industry knowledge and proven business skills of its principals, associates and a select network of top experts, we typically provide training in energy trading, natural gas markets, gas pipelines and storage, LNG, GTL and business skills. Consensia Limited is involved with essentially two types of training provision – in-company development and public events.

(i) In-house courses, Executive Briefings and Workshops

We have extensive experience in developing staff and management for energy companies, utilities and regulatory agencies. Whilst training key staff is both necessary and important, we recognise that this takes them away from their “day job” and that training is not a “one size fits all”. Many organisations now wish to receive ‘softer’ external consulting activities and to have greater control over their in-house training activities. Substantial savings in travel time and expenses can make in-house courses a more cost effective and flexible option than attending public courses, for specialised training and for larger numbers, to better meet a company’s operational and training needs.

Bringing Consensia Limited to your company is a cost-effective and time-sensitive way of briefing or updating your employees with the added benefit that any of our courses can be customised to meet your specific criteria. Tell us what the objectives are for your training requirement and we will custom design a course to meet your needs. Duration of the training may vary between a day up to a full week. Such tailored, instructor led courses are designed to be interactive in nature and can be industry knowledge or business skill based. They may be offered through an independent training provider or contracted directly with us working in concert with the clients’ in-house training departments to achieve the required knowledge transfer.

(ii) Public courses and Seminars

International, instructor led public courses have been developed by Consensia in the areas of energy and environment and these are generally offered through independent, professional training providers to all those wishing to attend. Typically, we assist with Diploma courses and present 5-day in-depth courses via The Oxford Princeton Programme on

“Principles of Power and Gas Trading”: With trading now an established part of the energy business and the electricity and gas markets ever converging, it is imperative to understand how and why this interaction occurs. This unique and in-depth course has been specially developed to provide key understanding of the processes and operation of trading, risk management and transportation of both electricity and natural gas and their increasing interactions and interdependence in liberalised markets. Invited guest speakers from trading companies join us during this established course and a syndicate based business game runs throughout to allow delegates to apply principles and reinforce key messages.

Consensia also provides a number of public training courses and seminars in conjunction with top international conference and training organisers

We offer executive briefings and in-house courses reflecting both company needs and our areas of expertise to develop or update client staff. Consensia Limited continuously endeavours to develop new courses to lead and meet market requirements and seek to ensure that all courses emphasise practical learning by encompassing interactive sessions, syndicate study exercises and, where appropriate, a business game/simulation to ensure a high level of attendee participation and knowledge transfer.
