Your thoughts BEFORE taking a UAES course

  • FERC accounting vs. FASB/GASB accounting makes no sense.

  • I'm the head of work order accounting and our budgets are always off, not in a good way, what do I do?

  • I am supposed to approve electric rates and financial statements, but I don't know what I'm looking at or even the right questions to ask. I don't want to sound like I don't know what I'm talking about.

  • I know our accounting and business processes impact electric rates, but I don't think what we do has a big impact on customers.

  • I am a new employee and don't know the power and utilities business.

  • Power and utilities accounting and business processes are boring.

Your insights AFTER taking a UAES course

  • FERC, FASB, and GASB can work together like a great dancing team!

  • The best electric cooperatives and utilities in the nation wrestle with work orders and meeting budgets. The course series on work order accounting gave me insights into those best practices. Now we have a plan to close the gaps and get back on track.

  • I know what part of the financials and rate studies that matter. I'm asking great questions and cutting to the heart of the matter before making the final decisions on rate and budget approval.

  • I can train our finance staff on how what they do and how they do it impacts electric rates.

  • Team members look at me in awe as I can now hold a conversation on FERC accounting, electric ratemaking, work order accounting, and financial management with our consultants and anyone in our organization!

  • Power and utilities accounting is fun and entertaining! I can't wait to get to work!
