NERC CIP Bootcamp

As the leader in NERC CIP Education in North America, EnergySec is offering our NERC CIP Bootcamp in New Orleans, LA, on March 12-16, 2018. This course provides essential foundational knowledge of the NERC CIP ecosystem, as well as in-depth information on every standard and requirement in the latest CIP versions. 


The course can also be individually configured to address the areas of interest for each attendee. For those entities or individuals dealing with only low impact systems, Day 1 provides foundational knowledge of the CIP standards and a deep dive into the low impact requirements. Days 1-3 provide foundational knowledge and cover all requirements at all impact levels from CIP-002 through CIP-014, including a look at the current draft versions of CIP-012 and CIP-013. Days 4-5 complete the Bootcamp by addressing process, evidence, and audit requirements.

The full 5-day Bootcamp qualifies for 40 CPE credits with certificates awarded after verification of class attendance.
