We Know What It's Like To Walk In Your Shoes

Imagine having seasoned, utility licensing, and compliance resources by your side from resources that:
  • have lived the utility culture,
  • offer real life experience complying with regulatory standards, requirements, and procedures, and 
  • who understand the workload, technical knowledge, and skills required to operate nuclear and electric generation and distribution facilities.

That’s Certrec.
Founded in 1988, CERTREC is a technology-based, regulatory compliance service provider with more than 250 cumulative years of engineering and audit experience with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and other regulatory agency compliance.

    Where Do You Turn When You Have Hours, Rather Than Months, To Accomplish The Seemingly Impossible?
