Bootcamp Overview

The NERC O&P Bootcamp is an educational offering from Archer Energy Solutions. This course provides essential foundational knowledge of the NERC O&P ecosystem, as well as in-depth information on the most violated and/or challenging O&P standards and requirements.

Archer is obsessed with quality, integrity and value in everything we do and this course is an extension of that commitment. Get the inside story directly from former Regional O&P Auditors, former registered entity compliance officers and former subject matter experts. If it’s an O&P standard, we’ve implemented it and audited it. We can show you how to cross the compliance finish line and maintain it.

Day 1 of the Bootcamp provides foundational knowledge of the O&P standards and a deep dive into the regulatory process, players and pitfalls. Topics include the regulatory agencies as well as the history and legal basis of the standards, their format and relevant terminology. Participants will receive an understanding of common compliance oversight practices employed by the ERO and the Regional Entities. This includes a detailed explanation of the audit process from preparation, to execution, to post-audit negotiations. Attendees will obtain an understanding of the NERC Rules of Procedures (RoP), Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP), Inherent Risk Assessments (IRA), Internal Controls Evaluation (ICE), and the audit process as documented in the ERO Auditors Handbook. RSAW and evidence preparation and presentation will also be discussed.

Days 2-3 presents a deeper dive into the most violated and challenging of the O&P standards, covering selected requirements in-depth with discussions on successful compliance approaches.

Standards covered:

  • BAL-002
  • COM-002
  • FAC-003
  • FAC-008
  • MOD-025 through MOD-027
