CASE STUDY: Repowering Southern California with Exceptional Training Delivery

Committed to clean energy, AES embarked on an ambitious, multi-billion-dollar project to replace aging and inefficient critical power generation resources in Southern California with state-of-the-art highly efficient alternatives.


AES needed a full staff, but most importantly, a fully trained staff. With a workforce averaging 25 years of experience on the old conventional power plant, it was critical for the training program to be customized not only to the AES site and new equipment but to the needs of the AES team.


A collaborative training partnership between AES and TTP. Leveraging custom, site-specific 3D animations and models of the new AES site and equipment, TTP built an integrated training program with eLearning courses, on-site and remote instructor-led training (ILT), training manuals, job aids, competency assessments, and more.


  • Shortened Onboarding Time
  • Improved Cross-Training Opportunities
  • Reduced Costs
  • Increased Efficiency
  • Met Demand for Increased Production Needs

In the first three years of operation, the first plant implementing the new program is producing an Equivalent Availability Factor (EAF) of 98% compared to the industry average of 87-90% – potentially millions of dollars in annual savings.
