IEA Training

World-class energy training programmes offered by the IEA

The IEA offers interactive training across a range of topics. It features a variety of formats from group training to individual work placements (secondments).

In either case, the aim is to establish ongoing working relationships with participating countries for continual capacity building, as well as two-way information exchange.
