SHORT DESCRIPTION: Upcoming market training courses

INTENDED AUDIENCE: ERCOT Market Participants

DAY AFFECTED: See course schedule below

LONG DESCRIPTION: ERCOT has modified its market training course catalog to accommodate changes for ERCOT and Market Participants due to measures taken in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.  In addition to converting instructor-led in-person market training courses to Webex, multiple day instructor-led courses have been split into two or more one-day courses for more effective delivery and increased scheduling flexibility.  Each one day course builds on specified prerequisites, covers specific market concepts and have defined objectives to allow development of market knowledge in manageable one-day increments. 

The following multi-day courses are impacted:

Wholesale Markets 201 – This comprehensive review of wholesale market operations has been split into two one-day courses and additional web-based training material.

  • Day-Ahead Market Operations
  • Real-Time Market Operations

Resource 301 – This extensive study of Generation and Load Resource operations in the ERCOT Markets has been split into two one-day courses and additional web-based training material.

  • Resources and Day-Ahead Operations
