New Energy Workforce & Technology Council Certified Executive Designation

The Energy Workforce & Technology Council Certified Executive designation recognizes specialized industry knowledge, achievements and experience.  A voluntary certification effort, the program is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and build knowledge essential to the oil and gas industry.

Members who complete each of the Council’s three signature training programs; Executive Leadership Program, Inclusive Leader Program, and ESG Certification Program, will be recognized as a Energy Workforce & Technology Council Certified Executive. In response to the COVID-19 environment, all Certification Programs have transitioned to remote format.

“A Certified Executive has received the development required to address key defining issues for the future of our industry,” said Energy Workforce & Technology Council CEO Leslie Beyer. “All three of the Energy Workforce’s industry-leading executive training programs contain leadership elements that will prepare executives for their future roles.”

Energy Workforce’s training programs include enhanced year-long programs on ESG and Inclusive Leadership, facilitated by Envision Group International and its Founder and CEO Pat Lipovski.  Using virtual format, enrollment is open to members and non-members globally.

All year-long courses include targeted interactive webinars, cross-company networking, executive coaching and individual mentoring:
