regulators, policy-makers and infrastructure managers around the world
will travel to Gainesville, Florida to participate in the University of Florida PURC/World
Bank International Training Program on Utility Regulation and Strategy.
They will learn problem-solving techniques and exchange ideas and
experiences during an international forum for the dissemination of
relevant best practices and research.
The international training program is an intensive, two-week course specifically tailored to the professional requirements of utility regulators and regulatory staff. The course is designed to enhance the economic, technical, and policy skills required for implementing policies and managing sustainable regulatory systems for infrastructure sectors.
The program is a collaborative effort between the World Bank and PURC and is offered each January and June in Gainesville, Florida. Each program encompasses more than 50 sessions that include case studies, practical exercises and panel discussions with leading experts and international faculty.
More than 1,800 utility professionals from 133 nations have participated in the course since 1997.
