Why Complete Your ERP?

You like to finish what you start. You’re among the ~50% of candidates to pass the ERP Part I Exam. In 2021, you’ll get a last chance to take the next step in your journey and complete Part II. Offered in May and November, the ERP Part II Exam will help you build the foundation of knowledge and market insights necessary to see the “big picture” and ask the right questions as you develop your career in energy.

This will be your last chance to complete your journey. GARP will discontinue the ERP after 2021’s Part II Exams due to the transition in energy markets but will continue to support energy risk managers with content, research, and events. Part I will no longer be offered.

Candidates will still have five years from the date they pass the Part II Exam to meet the work requirements to become certified. In addition, Continuing Professional Development will remain in place for ERP certifieds, giving you a career filled with professional learning.
