Energy Compliance Consulting holds periodic public EQR training conferences, and also provides EQR training sessions on-site at utilities’ offices. Due to Covid, the most recent public conferences were held virtually. For the foreseeable future, public EQR training conferences will be held online.
Holding the training online allows for more course offerings. EQR training courses offered include:
Full Program: For beginning filers, this “soup-to-nuts” training covers an overview of FERC and compliance/enforcement; general information about the EQR; what specifically goes into the ID, Contract, Transaction, and Index Reporting data files; formatting data and submitting EQRs on FERC’s site; troubleshooting filings; and FERC Audits. That training usually runs for two six-hour days. Click for details and to register for upcoming Full Program training classes.
Content Intensive: For more seasoned filers or for EQR team members who will not be doing the actual filing, this one-day class will focus on general EQR issues and detailed information about what is to be included in the ID, Contract, Transactions, and Index Publisher files. The class will skip the Intro to FERC; the formatting and uploading data to FERC’s site; troubleshooting; and FERC Audits.

Here is what attendees had to say about a previous EQR Training Conference:
From a soon-to-be EQR filer:
“Thanks for your hosting of the recent EQR Training Class. The timing was just right coming just after the recent FERC 768 Order. As an employee of one of the non-public utilities newly falling under the non-jurisdictional utility criteria of Order 768, your class was the perfect “Fast Track” to understanding EQR Reporting. I would recommend this class as the starting point for other who similarly have little or no FERC EQR filing experience and need that quick boost to getting started on the right path.”
From a seasoned EQR filer:
“I have been doing the Electric Quarterly Report for five years, and working with the FERC for even longer, and yet I still found an amazing amount of value from your two-day training class (including the “Introduction to FERC” portion). I picked up many tips that will help me make significant improvements in the quality of our EQR filings. Thank you for a wonderful, useful and informative class.”
Holding EQR training at your location or having a virtual training session just for your utility can be cost-effective if you have multiple employees to train. It also allows us to focus, confidentially, on your particular issues and markets.
