In response to evolving regulatory requirements, 360training.com and L&K International have released updated continuing education (CE) courses that are recognized by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). The improved curriculum includes an overview of the latest NERC standards and their corresponding application to the generation, transmission, and distribution sectors of the power and utilities industry.
360training.com’s updated content is a welcome development for plant managers and operators, utility managers and workers, and system operators who need to earn continuing education hours (CEH) and keep up with changing regulations. As an approved CE provider, 360training.com incorporates the latest NERC standards to online courses that tackle essential practices and techniques to ensure reliable power grid operations.
“The updated NERC library is a demonstration of 360training.com’s commitment to provide a one-stop training and compliance solution for every learner,” said Muddassir Katchi, Product Line Manager for Power and Utilities at 360training.com. “It’s not just about being the largest NERC online training provider—it’s also about making sure that 360training.com’s courses are up-to-date and relevant to the latest trends in the industry,” Katchi adds.
To extend its lead in the eLearning landscape, 360training.com also offers automated System Operator Certification and Continuing Education Database (SOCCED) reporting. Once students complete the CE course and pass the final exam, 360training.com will upload their CEH credits via SOCCED—a database used by certified system operators and learning providers to gain and maintain certification.
