NERC CE

Online Courses for the Power & Utilities Industry

With the System Operator Certification Program, you will obtain the necessary groundwork to get your NERC certification as a Reliability Operator, Balancing and Interchange Operator, Transmission Operator or Interchange and Transmission Operator. Upon completion of the NERC exam, you will obtain the necessary NERC system operator personal credentials.

In order to maintain your NERC Certification, you will need to take a certain number of continuing education courses. At Power Plant Training Institute, our goal is to make your NERC continuing education as easy and quick and possible.
