NERC's Continuing Education Program acknowledges high-quality learning activities within the electric utility industry by approving continuing education providers that meet NERC guidelines and standards. Information on how to become a NERC recognized continuing education provider is contained in the links below.
Both initial and existing continuing education providers gain access to the System Operator Certification and Continuing Education Database (SOCCED) through a web portal designed to integrate with a Microsoft SQL database. The link below will take you to the SOCCED home page, where you can:
- create a new provider account, or
- access your existing provider account
Once you gain access to the SOCCED you can submit new individual learning activity (ILA) applications, review the status of existing courses, and submit transcripts of delivered courses so system operators can receive credit for CE hours earned by taking approved learning activities.
For more information about the Continuing Education program email NERC.Continuing.Education@nerc.net or call 404-446-9759.
