An Energy Resources Compliance Specialist is an entry-level classification that learns to plan, develop, and train the Energy Resources Department employees regarding Operator Qualification (gas and electric), Electrical Apprenticeship Program, and all regulatory requirements.  This classification works closely with the Energy Resources Compliance Coordinator in developing, coordinating, and participating in specialized, technical, and general utilities (gas and electric) training and development.

Duties include learning to:  conduct needs-analyses; develop training programs and modules; create hands-on simulations; create training presentations; revise and update training modules as changes are made to the Code of Federal Regulations Part 192, Operations and Maintenance Manual, Emergency Plan Review, or other changes to policies and procedures; and facilitate individual and group training.  The incumbent develops, coordinates, evaluates, and delivers training to Utilities employees, Customer Service employees, and contractors performing covered tasks (example:  operator qualification, fusion and welding certification, professional development hours, etc.).

Additional duties include learning to:  perform on-site inspections related to Abnormal Operating Conditions and taking necessary steps with the homeowner, business, or City staff to resolve the outstanding issues; facilitate meetings; act as an advisor and review or consult on training; review new tools, programs, equipment, and safety gear, etc.; and participate in special events, public presentations, and other educational events.  This class performs related duties as required.

This classification differs from the Energy Resources Compliance Coordinator with the latter being the subject matter expert in the Energy Resources department operational and performance criteria.  As training progresses and skills and experience increase, the incumbent is expected to demonstrate the ability to work independently and exercise good judgment and initiative in combining a broad scope of professional utilities, business and technical knowledge, and sophisticated, analytical decisions to develop education and training programs that are content accurate and understandable by those receiving instruction.  Incumbents, at first, work closely with the Energy Resources Compliance Coordinator.  As time progresses, they must carry out assignments without detailed instruction or guidance and provide assistance to the Arizona Corporation Commission during the annual audit for the Gas Department.  This class is supervised by the Energy Resources Compliance Coordinator who reviews work through conferences, observations, customer feedback, reports, and overall results achieved.  This class is FLSA exempt-administrative.
